Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 3/4 cups self-rising flour -- soft wheat preferred
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
3/4 cup margarine -- softened
1 egg
1/4 cup light molasses


Combine flour, soda, and spices in a bowl and set aside.

Cream sugar and margarine.

Beat in egg and molasses until light and fluffy.

Stir in flour mixture just until blended.

Chill for 2 hours or more.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls, roll in granulated sugar, and place on lightly greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

Bake about 8 to 10 minutes, until set.
