Day 5: Molasses Cookies

11:01 PM

Molasses Cookies

  • 2 c sugar
  • 3/4 c butter
  • 1/2 c molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 c flour
  • 5 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix cream together sugar and butter.  Mix in molasses and eggs until well combined. 

In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients.  Stir into wet ingredients, stirring together lightly.  Mix until dough is combined.  It will seem dry and crumbly.

Roll dough into walnut-sized balls, then generously coat each ball with sugar.  Place balls on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 9-11 minutes.  Allow cookies to bake for another minute after they begin to crack.  Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool.
