Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup M&M’s

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Combine the butter with both sugars, vanilla, molasses and egg and beat with a mixer until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until flour is combined.
  • Stir in the M&M’s, preferably by hand. Make sure they are well distributed, but don't over mix or they might get crushed.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray and press the batter evenly into the pan with a spatula. The dough will be stiff and not pourable. Add a few more M&Ms on top of the batter if desired.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
