Dani's Snappy Ginger Cookies


1.5 cups butter or margarine (not light)

2 cups white sugar

½ cup molasses

2 eggs

4.5 cups white flour

4 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

2 to 3 tsp ginger

1 to 1.5 tsp cloves


Preheat oven to 375. Whisk all the dry ingredients together, set aside. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in molasses and eggs. Mix in the dry ingredients. Try forming some into a stiff ball ---you may need to add a little bit more flour.

Form into small balls and roll in white sugar. Do not flatten. Bake about 8 minutes or until done. (See if the bottoms are brown.)

Thanks to Dani Harper!
