This recipe is a favorite of our oldest son. He’s just finishing up with his finals and will be home soon to enjoy a full cookie jar!
(Makes 4-5 dozen)
¾ cups butter
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup molasses
2 ¼ cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp salt
Combine the first four ingredients in a bowl. Mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Roll teaspoonfuls of chilled dough into balls.
Dip the tops in sugar and place on your cookie sheet, sugar side up.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack. These cookies freeze well.
