Christmas Goodies: Spice Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 c butter
3 tablespoons molasses
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon ginger
Cream sugar, eggs, butter, molasses. Sift flour, soda, and spices. Add to creamed mixture. Stir well.
Shape in walnut-sized balls and roll in sugar. Flatten balls with glass or fork dipped in sugar to prevent sticking. For chewier cookies, omit this step.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
