Old Fashioned Ginger Molasses Cookies
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup fancy molasses
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2-3 tsp of ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Line a couple of cookie sheets with parchment or butter well.
- Beat together the butter, sugar, and molasses. Add the dry ingredients all at once. Mix to form dough.
- Roll into small balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Flatten with a fork.
- Bake at 325 deg F for about 10-12 minutes or until just starting to brown. Don’t overcook – they are supposed to be soft.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool on wire racks.
