My husband and I modified this recipe for ages until we found
a spicy cookie we liked.
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened
¼ + 2 tablespoons cup molasses
3 ¼ cups flour
2 tablespoons ginger
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon each: cinnamon & nutmeg
½ teaspoon each: cloves, white pepper & salt
sugar and butter in large bowl. Add eggs and molasses. Stir
together remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Gradually
add flour mixture to butter mixture until well blended. Refrigerate
dough 1 hour or until easy to handle.
oven to 350.
well floured surface, roll out half the dough to 1/8”
thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Place on cookie sheet
that has been sprayed with cooking oil. Bake 8 – 10
minutes. Cool on rack. If you don’t want to roll &
cut cookies, you can make 1” balls, place on cookie
sheet and gently push down with fork – like you would
do with a peanut butter cookie.
