Recipe Corner: Molasses Cookies

Those who know me best know that cookies are my weakness. These molasses cookies are so soft and chewy, there is no way to just eat one.

Do you have a mouthwatering recipe you would like to recommend? Shoot me an email at betweenthelines-kam@hotmail.com  and I can post it for all to enjoy!
Ingredients
• 3/4 cup margarine, melted

• 1 cup white sugar

• 1 egg

• 1/4 cup molasses

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• 2 teaspoons baking soda

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

• 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves (I sometimes leave out the cloves and add extra cinnamon)

• 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

• 1/2 cup white sugar


Directions

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted margarine, 1 cup sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger; blend into the molasses mixture. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until tops are cracked. Cool on wire racks. (a few minutes less for chewy cookies and few minutes more for crispy cookies)
