Cat Lady No. 59... Secret Family Recipe

Cat Lady Betty is whipping up a fresh batch of molasses cookies under the watchful eye of Crocker. Her grandmother always made molasses cookies and kept them in a ceramic cookie jar that was in the shape of an alarm clock. The clock had a jolly face and was winking and at the bottom it said, "Time for Cookies"! Here is the Secret Family Recipe:

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1-1/2 tsp ginger
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Mix in remaining ingredients except 1/4 cup sugar. Form one-inch balls and roll the balls in remaining sugar to coat. Press with bottom of a drinking glass to flatten . Place on ungreased baking sheet; bake 10 minutes.
