Authentic Molasses Cookies Recipe

Great tasting cookies!

Ingredients

1 cup molasses

1/2 pound butter

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup hot water

4 cups flour

2 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon allspice

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Method

Heat the molasses to a boil. Remove from heat and add butter, stirring until
melted. Place
the sugar in a deep bowl and add soda to the hot water; pour water into the
molasses.

Pour the molasses mixture into the bowl of sugar and thoroughly mix. Add spices,
flour
and salt and mix with molasses and sugar.
Pour into a loaf pan lined with parchment
paper
or waxed paper and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 325. Cut dough as thin as possible and bake on a non-stick surface
or a
greased sheet for 15 minutes. Cool on a rack. They will be great
for the
holidays, and we're betting they'll be a family favorite.
