Why I Love This Recipe

My mom has been baking these cookies for years and I just love them, they are fairly simple and quick to make and soooo yummy!

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flower
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. total combined cinnamon, cloves, and ginger (all ground up together)
1/4 tsp. salt


Mix all ingredients.

Roll into one inch balls and then roll around in sugar to coat.

Spray cookie sheet and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Bake 8-10 min at 375 degrees. Less for moist and chewier and more for firmer and crispier.
