Ginger Cookies

These cookies use 3 sticks of butter and are perfect for "edibles".

  • 3 sticks of unsalted butter - softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Grandma's Molasses (okay, you can use another brand, but in all my years of cooking, I've never tried any other.)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons powdered ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
Cream the butter and sugar in your mixer and then add the eggs and molasses. Mix well. Sift the dry ingredients together and slowly add to the mixer. When everything has been mixed, put the dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

When you're ready to bake them, roll the dough into balls around 1" in diameter to get 40-48 cookies.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. They're done when they start to crack.
