Looking for a yummy fall cookie?  Molasses cookies are one of my favorites!

I just made a batch on Sunday afternoon and then froze some cookie balls so I can pull them out of the freezer and have fresh baked cookies without the mess of making the batter every time.

Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try some!

Molasses Cookies

1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. shortening
1/4 c. molasses
1 egg

2-1/4 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt

Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg. Mix in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, clovers, and salt.

Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat over to 375 degrees. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Dip tops in granulated sugar. Place sugar side up on lightly greased cookie sheets (I prefer to use a baking stone–no greasing necessary.)

Bake just until set–10-12 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheet.
