Lindsey Wintch


3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt

**Sondra Sodorborg gave me these cookies and they are the best!**
This is a Christmas holiday cookie.

In a saucepot, melt the butter and stir in the molasses and sugar. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes, then beat in the egg. Sift together all remaining dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, gently blend the dry ingredients in with the saucepot ingredients. Chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Once mixture is cool and firm, shape raw dough into 1" balls and roll in granulated sugar. (You'll need an additional 1/2 cup.) Place on cookie sheet with a silicone liner (or just greased) about 3 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. You know they are done when they are really puffy and just starting to crack on the tops. Let cool and eat with milk or use the cookies for an ice cream sandwich. Either way, they are amazing!
