Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • ½ teaspoon maple extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 medium oranges, zested
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2 Beat both sugars, 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter, and cream cheese together until creamy, at least 5 minutes. Add egg and mix well. Mix in molasses. Mix in vanilla, orange, and maple extracts.
  3. 3 Stir flour, orange zest, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, cloves, and nutmeg together in another bowl until well combined and no clumps of zest remain. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir together just until incorporated; don't overmix.
  4. 4 Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
