I love these cookies! It’s like a Gingersnap but it’s chewy, not snappy 🙂
It goes great with hot cocoa, spiced tea, coffee, well….everything, and is an absolute must every Christmas.
1 cup butter or butter flavored Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
2 T molasses
2 cups flour
4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
Beat together butter, sugar, egg, and molasses until creamy. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
*Chill the dough for at least an hour. It handles much easier this way.
Working in batches (1/2 in the refrigerator while you roll 1/2 to keep it firm) roll the dough into 1-inch balls, dip into a small bowl of sugar and then place sugar side up on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Don’t flatten. Bake at 350* for about 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
