Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and both sugars together on high speed until creamy and combined, about 2 minutes. Add the molasses and beat until well incorporated . Then add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined, about another minute. 1 minute.
On low speed, slowly mix the dry ingredients and blend to combine. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
Roll a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball. Roll each in sugar-cinnamon mixture and place on prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges start to set and cracks appear on top.
Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on top of warm cookies. Enjoy!
