    21/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
    3/4 cup Smart Balance Buttery Spread, room temperature
    1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
    1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/3 cup for coating
    6 tablespoons molasses
    1 medium-sized egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, allspice, and pepper.

With an electric mixer, cream Smart Balance, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses and egg. With mixer on low, gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic, and freeze for 20 minutes.

Divide dough into twelve 2-inch balls. Place remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar in a bowl. Roll balls in sugar to coat; place at least 4 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten into 3-inch rounds. Sprinkle with sugar remaining in bowl.

Bake until brown, rotating sheets halfway through, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
