Ingredients

3 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup packed brown sugar

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk flour with baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter with brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.

Mix in egg whites. Once combined add corn syrup and molasses. Beat until fully mixed, scraping down the bowl as needed.
