Backstory

Found this on the back of the molasses bottle. Haven't tried it yet, but Halloween's coming. Would make nice bats and cats! Dough must be chilled. The paper I wrote this on became smudged and I don't know how long to bake the cookies. I would think about 8-10 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

  • Chill dough for 1 hour.
  • Divide dough in half and keep half of dough in fridge.
  • Roll out dough to 1/4" and cut shapes.
