Brown Butter Molasses Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons soda
1.5 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
3/4 teaspoon cardamom, ground (or 1/2 teaspoon....to taste)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup dark brown sugar

Brown the butter for about 5 minutes, then let cool
Mix all dry ingredients
Then mix all the wet ingredients, and combine both.
refrigerate for 1-24 hours
Form the into small ball, and roll them in raw sugar
Place on a greased cookie sheet and drop 1-2 drops of water onto each cookie to give them a crinkled look.
Bake at 300 for 15+ minutes, checking every 2-3 minutes after 12 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.

I found this recipe here, and have made a few adjustments.  One of the better molasses cookie recipes I've found, different in that it uses browned butter and cardamom.  I used less cardamom b/c it's so strong.
