Ginger Spice Cookies Tonja Randolph’s favorite 1 cup sugar ¾ cup butter, softened 1 egg 3 tablespoons molasses 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1-½ teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground cloves ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, cream sugar with butter for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and molasses. In a separate medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and blend well. Fill a shallow bowl with sugar. Break off walnut-size pieces of dough and roll into balls. Roll balls in sugar and arrange on greased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies to rack to cool.
