Mrs. Downey's Molasses Cookies Recipe

Mrs. Downey's Molasses Cookies Recipe

½ c. butter (softened)
1 c. sugar
1 egg
¼ c. molasses
2 c. flour
2 tsp. dried ginger
2 tsp salt (I used coarse Mediterranean Sea Salt)
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda

Cream butter and sugar.  Beat in egg.  Stir in molasses.  Add dry ingredients; mix well.

Refrigerate dough at least 1 hour.

Form 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes.  Cool on rack.

(I like them chewy so I under cook them a bit.)
