  • Summary

    If you’d like an even more pronounced molasses flavor, use a robust instead of mild molasses. Just don’t use blackstrap in these cookies; not only will it be too strong and bitter, but it will overwhelm the spices.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely ground black pepper, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1 large egg, room temperature
    • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon mild-flavored (light) molasses
    • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon (or more) milk
    • Raw sugar (for sprinkling)
