Why I Love This Recipe

This is another around the world recipe, that I sent to family members stationed stateside or overseas. Even people who do not like molasses, like these cookies.

I usually double this recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups flour
2 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg


Combine dry ingredients: flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and ginger.

Beat margarine and sugar, until light and creamy. Add molasses and egg.

Beat well.

Gradually add dry ingredients.

Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

Form into 1-inch balls.

Roll in sugar.

Slightly flatten (with greased glass-bottom dipped in sugar).

Bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes.
