DIRECTIONS

  • Using a strong mixer, mix butter and sugar until sugar has aerated the butter and it is light and fluffy (5 minutes). Blend in molasses and egg gently.
  • While butter/sugar is mixing, blend all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture in thirds until fully blended (this is where the powerful mixer comes in handy!).
  • Refrigerate 1 hour (which makes it easier to roll into balls).
  • Form into balls a little smaller than a golf ball and roll in sugar. Place on parchment paper or greased sheet.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes (for 20 large cookies).
  • Hint - When the cookies are done baking, they puff up in the center and crack, but wait until the inside of the crack turns from shiny dark brown (not cooked) to medium brown (done).
