Mmmmm... molasses.



Here's another one for the recipe box... a fantastic recipe for molasses cookies from blog reader craighead gal.  Looks like I need to head back to the store for more ingredients.  Recipe on the jump. 

Her recipe:

Molasses Cookies

¾ cup melted butter
¼ cup dark molasses
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar reserved in small bowl (for coating)

Combine butter, sugar, molasses and egg; beat well. Combine remaining ingredients except sugar; add to molasses mixture, mixing well. Chill approximately 30 minutes.

Roll into one-inch balls; roll in reserved sugar. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper instead of greasing cookie sheet.) Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes. Makes about three dozen.
