My Grandma Elsie's molasses cookies that reportedly make you "spit black" :-) We just like dunking them in coffee.
- 3⁄4 cup butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup dark molasses
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon clove
- Mix butter, sugar, eggs and molasses together in a bowl.
- Add salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves.
- Stir in flour.
- Roll into balls. Roll the balls in sugar and place on cookie sheets.
- Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until edges brown.
My husband won't keep his fingers out of them!!! Very much like the Archway brand Molasses cookies! Will definately make again!
