Ginger Sugar Cookies

I make these cookies every Christmas (and also throughout the year because I love them too much to wait 12 months to eat them!)
I have been asked by a number of people for the recipe, so here goes:

Ginger Sugar Cookies


3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
Sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar

Add egg and Molasses, and mix

In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients (with the exception of the sugar) with a fork

Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, and stir

Roll the cookie dough into small balls (about half the size of a golf ball)

Roll the balls in a plate of sugar and place on a cookie sheet

Bake at 350° for 8 minutes

Remove from oven and let cool before removing from pan
