Molasses Sugar Cookies

Molasses Sugar Cookies

I was given this recipe years ago by a family friend. It’s the perfect cookie for this time of year. They are like a gingersnap – but without the ‘snap’

Molasses Sugar Cookies

3/4 C butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt butter and allow to cool. Add sugar, molasses and egg. Beat well.

Sift together flour and spices. Mix thoroughly into butter mixture. Chill.

Form into balls and roll in sugar. Place on greased baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
