Tonight, this happened: Pomegranate Molasses & Pine Nut Cookies

Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
    • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the work bowl of a stand mixer, using the paddle, cream sugar into butter. Add the pomegranate molasses and vanilla and beat until combined.
  4. Add the dry mixture by thirds, beating on medium speed, until just barely combined.
  5. Fold in the pine nuts by hand with a rubber spatula.
  6. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment or Silpats. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls, 2” apart. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes on the sheets, then transfer to a rack until completely cool. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week. Enjoy with ice-cold milk.
