MOLASSES SPICE COOKIES

MOLASSES SPICE COOKIES

 

4 ½ cups flour

4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

3 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. ground ginger

1 ½ tsp. ground cloves

1 ½ cups butter, softened

1 cup dark brown sugar, packed

1 cup granulated sugar

2 extra large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

2/3 cup unsulphered molasses

 

Preheat oven toi 375 degrees.

 

In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

 

In another large bowl combine the butter with sugars and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, vanilla and molasses and beat until smooth. Stir in the dry ingredients.

 

Roll the dough into 1 1/2 “ – 2” balls.  Place 2/3 cup of granulated sugar in a pie plate or shallow dish.  Roll each ball in the sugar to coat and place on ungreased cookies sheets 3” apart.

 

Bake for 10 minutes until the surface is cracked and the centers are soft and puffy.  They should be slightly under cooked to remain chewy.
