Christmas cookie


30 mins + chill time

¾ cup butter 1 egg 2 and ¼ cup flour 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger ½ teaspoon cloves 1 cup packed light brown sugar ¼ cup molasses 2 teaspoons baking soda ¼ teaspoon salt 1 cup granulated sugar


Make the dough by creaming together the butter & sugar. Add molasses and eggs. Then mix in dry ingredients.

Making the dough

The dough should hold together easily, but it needs to be chilled 30 minutes before using.

Rolling the molasses crinkles dough in sugar gives them their classic appearance. Don't skip this step!

Coat in sugar

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are set and browning.
