(makes roughly 2 1/2 dozen)
1/2 cup salted butter, melted
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 pkg. instant coffee granules
1 cup sugar
½ cup molasses
2 tsp. cinnamon
¾ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground ginger
3 cups flour
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In stand mixer, whip butter and sugar together until creamy. Add egg until incorporated. Then add the Molasses.
In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients: cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, ginger, salt, and flour.
Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients in the stand mixer. Mix until smooth.
Pour some white sugar into a shallow bowl. Form dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in sugar until coated.
Place sugar-coated balls on ungreased baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven (350 degrees F) for 10 minutes. Let cool on stove top for a few minutes before serving.
