Last night I didn’t make it to Fiesta Friday since I was at the formal ceremony for my brother’s graduation. Remember last week when I made the deviled eggs for his party? Well, this week it was cookies for the ceremony. Lots of grad stuff! Anyways, I know these were for the ceremony, but since it does make 60 cookies, I snuck a few and my sister did too…he-he some of the reasons we always cook in bulk! 🙂
Also, Move update: we are still looking for a house and trying to sell ours. We have had two showing though, which is good! Our dad is moving down next week and we are hoping to follow him down the next month. Overall it is chaotic, exciting, and sad all at the same time…
Now, the recipe for these cookies! I got them from my amazing friends the S’s! They have so many great recipes!
1 1/2 cups of butter or margarine softened
4 cups of flour
4 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of slat
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of cloves (or less if preferred)
1 tsp of ginger
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of molasses
Melt butter. Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly. Separately mix flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Add 2 cups sugar to cooled butter, add molasses and eggs. Mix until smooth and thick. Add flour mixture. Batter will be moist but do not add extra flour!
Cover and let shill for 2 hours. (I did overnight) Roll dough out into 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar.
Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes. They will looked under cooked, but they will set after a while.
