Molasses Crinkle Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MelinOhio

I love cookies and the molasses is so good in these with the spices. If you refrigerate the dough for about 1 hour, you can shape the dough into balls and roll them in granulated sugar. I think this is a little easier and your cookies are more uniform.
