Molasses Cookies

Last weekend my sister and I went "yard saling". We have a policy to always stop at the kid run lemonade stand and make a purchase. This week's purchase was over the top good. I bought a molasses cookie that was out of this world. I should've bought all of them, they were so good. The cookie reminded me of this recipe, which is from a college roommate. My roommate's mom sent them to her and I fell in love. Thankfully, she shared the recipe with me (on a postcard, which is tucked in my recipe binder and has my address from my freshman year in college!).

Molasses Cookies
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and molasses and blend. Mix in flour, cinnamon, and baking soda. Chill dough. Roll in to one inch balls and then roll balls in sugar (I use Turbinado or Raw Sugar). Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Bake only until cookies raise and just start to go back down. Do not over bake.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
