Looking for a yummy fall cookie? Molasses cookies are one of my favorites!
I just made a batch on Sunday afternoon and then froze some cookie balls so I can pull them out of the freezer and have fresh baked cookies without the mess of making the batter every time.
Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try some!
1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. shortening
1/4 c. molasses
2-1/4 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg. Mix in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, clovers, and salt.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat over to 375 degrees. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Dip tops in granulated sugar. Place sugar side up on lightly greased cookie sheets (I prefer to use a baking stone–no greasing necessary.)
Bake just until set–10-12 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheet.
