Why I Love This Recipe

This is most likely my familys favorite cookie. At Christmas it is the first one everyone looks for no matter how many others are presented. I got the recipe from a old 1987 Pillsbury check out counter type book "M.m.m.m.More Cookies"


Ingredients You'll Need

2 c. sugar
1/2 c molasses
1 1/2 c butter, softened
2 eggs
4 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. cloves
1 t. ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
Sugar


Directions

In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, molasses and eggs until light and fluffy.


Sift together the next seven dry ingredients and add to the moist ingredients a little at a time mixing well after each addition.


Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 1 hr.


Can even be over night.


Shape dough into 1-in balls; roll in sugar.


Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 min. or until set.


Cookies will puff up and flatten during baking. Cool 1 min; remove from cookie sheets to wire rack.


This makes 10 dozen cookies


These freeze very well.


A good cookie to ship also.
