Freda’s Soft Ginger Cookies

Freda brought these in to the Food Bank for our coffee break, and they are soft and delicious!

    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • ¾ cup butter
    • ¼ cup molasses (blackstrap preferred)
    • 1 egg
    • 2¼ cup flour
    • 2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp ginger
    • ½ tsp cloves
    • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Mix ingredients (my note:  just follow a basic cookie mixing method, ie, cream butter and sugar, mix in wet ingredients, then add the dry ingredients which have been sifted together)
  2. Roll into 1” balls
  3. Roll balls in granulated sugar
  4. Bake at 350° F on greased cookie sheet
  5. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes – watch carefully, they are easily over-baked
