1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups sifted flour
2 Tsp baking soda
1/2 Tsp salt
1 Tsp ginger
1 Tsp cinnamon

Granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350F

Cream together butter, brown sugar, molasses and egg until light and fluffy.

Stir into creamed mixture until blended.

Shape into small balls (1" diameter). Roll in the granulated sugar and place 2" apart on greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn; you may have to adjust the temperature.

Cool slightly, remove from pan and enjoy.
Makes about 4 dozen.
