Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Set the oven rack to the center position. Preheat to 300ºF (149ºC).
Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a 10-inch skillet (do not use nonstick or you won’t be able to see the browning) heat butter over medium heat. Once melted, reduce the heat to medium-low, swirl the skillet frequently until the butter solids begin to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Quickly transfer the browned butter to a large bowl.
Add ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and cayenne to the butter, whisk to combine. Cool slightly for 2 minutes.
Add brown sugar, molasses, and fresh ginger to the butter mixture, whisk to combine.
Add egg plus egg yolk, whisk to combine.
Add flour to butter mixture and stir with a spatula until just combined.
Tightly cover and refrigerate the dough until firm, 45 to 60 minutes.
Roll the cookie dough into 2 teaspoon-sized (12g) balls, about 1-inch in size.
Add granulated sugar into a shallow bowl and roll the cookies in sugar to coat.
Evenly space the cookies 2-inches apart, about 20 per cookie sheet.
Bake 1 sheet at a time until the edges are just beginning to darken, 20 to 22 minutes, rotating halfway through baking.
Transfer the cookies still sitting on the parchment paper to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will harden more as they cool.
