Molasses Cookies

  • 1.5 c butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 c flour
  • 4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp dried ground ginger
  • 1.5 c sugar
  • 1/2 c dark molasses
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cloves

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.  Sit dry ingredients together and add alternately with molasses.  Roll balls the size of a walnut and roll in additional granulated sugar.  All the cookies can be rolled out at one time (it is really sticky) and put on wax paper while batches bake. Bake at 325 deg until brown–about 20 min.  makes 5-7 dozen depending on size.

From dad<3 a christmas favorite.  The house smells heavenly when they bake.
