Molasses Ginger Cookies
Ingredients
  • 2 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground ginger
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cloves
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  cup  dark molasses
  • 1  egg
  • 1/2  cup  coarse raw sugar or granulated sugar
Directions

1. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the 34 cup granulated sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in molasses and egg until combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour mixture. Cover and refrigerate 3 hours or until easy to handle.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the 12 cup raw sugar. Place balls on parchment-lined cookie sheet or on ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are firm and tops are puffed; do not overbake. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks. Cool. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
