Cookies are made of butter and love. ~Norwegian Proverb
These cookies are just wonderful this time of the year and make your house smell so good while they are baking in the oven. My 4 year old grandson is a cookie monster and he can vouch for this recipe.
1 cup softened butter or margarine or two sticks or 16 tablespoons
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup molasses (I use sorghum, you can use any kind of molasses)
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Cream together the butter, brown sugar and egg.
Stir in molasses. Add flour and baking soda, cinnamon and ginger. Cover the dough and chill one hour in refrigerator. Make the dough into walnut sized balls and roll in granulated sugar. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray cookie sheet. Place cookies 2 inches apart and press down with fork dipped in sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Makes about 40 cookies. Enjoy!
