Molasses Cookies

1 1/2 Cups butter
2 Cups sugar
Cream those two in an electric mixer with wire whisk.

1/2 Cup molasses
2 eggs (one at the time)

Sift together the following six ingredients and then add to *wet* mixture:
4 Cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp cloves
2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon

Stir until well blended. Chill the dough before rolling it into small balls.

Bake at 375 degrees on ungreased cookie sheets for 10-12 mins, depending on the size of the ball :)

Makes 7 dozen?


  1. I love molasses cookies. But mostly I just find an excuse to comment on anyone's blog whose name is Dana. : )
