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.
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.
