RHORI JOHNSTON & KRISTIN PRIESOL's MOLASSES MERRY MORSELS

1 1/2

cups butter or margarine

4

cups flour

4

teaspoons baking soda

1

teaspoon salt

1/2

cup dark molasses

2

teaspoons ground cinnamon

1

teaspoon ground cloves

1

teaspoon ground ginger

2 1/2

cups granulated sugar

2

large eggs

  • Melt butter in large saucepan. Remove from heat. Let cool. Sift flour with baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. To the melted, cooled butter, add 2 cups sugar, molasses and eggs; beat well. When smooth and thick, stir in flour mixture, a cup at a time. When dough is well mixed, cover and chill 2 hours or longer.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into small balls, using about 1 1/2 teaspoons of dough for each. Roll balls in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 10 minutes, until cookie is dark, golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool about 2 minutes before moving to wire rack.

(Makes 6 dozen)

Cook's note: Dough stores well in refrigerator until you are ready to make a batch.
