Favorite Molasses Cookies

I like to make these in the fall because they remind me of Halloween and Thanksgiving time! I like to dust the cookies with raw or granualted sugar just before baking. This is from one of my favorite cookbooks (Taste of Home) by Marjorie Jenkins.- Christine

3/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. molasses
1 egg
2 c. flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ginger

In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in molasses and egg. Combine dry ingrediants, gradually add to creamed mixture. Chill for 1 hour, until firm. Shape into 1 inch balls. Press flat with a fork. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
