Here is a recipe for old-fashioned Molasses cookies that are quite delightful.

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cloves

1/8 tsp allspice

1 tsp ginger

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.  If you are not going to bake the cookies right away, then you can store the mix in an airtight container until needed.  You can also give this mix as a nice present.

Molasses Cookies/Makes 4 dozen cookies

3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 egg

1/4 cup sulfured molasses

1 package Molasses Cookie Mix

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter, egg, and molasses.  Add the Molasses Cookie Mix and beat until smooth.  Shape the dough into 1-inch balls; roll in granulated sugar and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.  Cool on wire racks.

Good Luck!
