soooo good!

soft and chewy molasses cookies


2 cups of flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t salt
1 cup of sugar
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 large egg
1/4 c black strap molasses

with an electric mixer combine softened (i melt it) butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
beat in egg, then molasses. add the rest of dry ingredients until dough forms.
in shallow bowl put 1/2 cup sugar for dusting.
roll dough into small balls and coat with the sugar.
place on pan and bake for approx 11 min until top cracks.
do one pan at a time for even baking.
