ginger snaps

don't let these seemingly boring cookies fool you...
the are fabulous!! I got the recipe from a college friend. One taste & I was hooked.
They don't snap- no, no they are soft & yummy & taste like fall.
My kids love them & so do I.
Try a something new- You'll thank me- really!
Cream together:
1 Cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
3/4 cup butter softened
1 egg
Wish or stir together:
2 Cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
Mix creamed & dry ingredients. Roll into 1" balls & then roll the balls in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 minutes. Cool for a minute or two; then transfer to a cooling rack.
