  • 1. Position an oven rack in the upper 1/3 of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 
    2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the egg and molasses and mix until evenly combined. Add the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt, beating until combined and a dough forms. 
    3. Place the coarse sugar in a small bowl. 
    4. Lightly rub your hands with butter. Roll the dough into tablespoon size balls and roll through the coarse sugar (if the dough is too sticky, chill for 20 minutes). Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart. Transfer to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to set around the edges, the centers should be a little doughy. Let cool on the pan 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    5. Drizzle or dip each cookie in chocolate. Let the chocolate set at room temp, about 1 hour. Store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
