Molasses Crinkles

I love molasses cookies and they were a great Fall snack with some Apple Cider! :)

 Mix up the sugar and then add other ingredients..

 Mix in flour and other dry ingredients and spices...

 Roll into balls and roll in sugar..
Chill dough for 3 hours (I only did 2 hours and it was enough)

 bake the cookies.... 10 minutes is how long I did!`

Molasses Crinkles

From Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls
  1. 3/4 cup butter (room temp)
  2. 1 cup brown sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/4 cup molasses
  5. 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  6. 2 tsp. baking soda
  7. 1/4 tsp. salt
  8. 1/2 tsp. cloves
  9. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  10. 1 tsp. ginger
  11. 1/2 cup sugar
1.  Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in egg and molasses and mix until smooth.
2.  In a separate bowl mix together the flour, soda, salt and spices.
3.  Add into the butter mixture and combine.
4.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill dough for at least 3 hours (or overnight).
5.  After the dough is chilled preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F).
6.  Scoop out some dough with a spoon and roll it into a walnut sized ball.  Dip the top into a small bowl full of sugar.  Place on your baking sheet (parchment lined is best, but otherwise just greased normally) about 3 inches apart.
7.  Once your baking sheet is full, using your fingers, sprinkle or flick each cookie with a few drops of water.  This will give a nice crackled surface of the cookie when it’s baked.
8.  Place in oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, just until set but not hard.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
