Posts Tagged ‘Cookies’

For a very long time, I shied away from these wonderful cookies for fear of them not ending up soft and chewy like all of the wonderful ones that I remembered eating.  That and really, who wants to measure molasses.  It’s sticky and messy!  But, I found a hit in a cooking magazine once that said to spray the measuring cup 1st.  I thought why not…and guess what!  It works!!!  Now I use this little trick for measuring honey, molasses, corn syrup…pretty much anything sticky!!!

Ingredients:

3/4 C  Butter – softened

1 C  Sugar

1 Egg

1/4 C  Molasses

2 C  Flour

2 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

1/2 tsp Ground Ginger

additional sugar for rolling cookies in

Directions:

Blend butter, sugar and egg until smooth.  Stir in the molasses. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger and stir well.

Cover the dough and allow to chill in the refrigerator 1/2 to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375°.  Roll the cookie dough into small balls (I like use a small cookie scoop.)  Then roll the balls in the additional sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.

Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until tops are cracked slightly.  Allow to cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then remove to cooling racks!

Enjoy!!!
