  4. Add molasses and beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.

  9. Arrange on non-stick or parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving 2 inches of space between cookies. Repeat with remaining dough.
  10. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until cookies are just set on top and bottoms are lightly golden brown.
