BLESS THIS MESS
Classic Molasses Cookies that are chewy and stay soft for days-but mine never make it that far because they are so yummy!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment.
In a large bowl beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the molasses and egg and beat well.
Add the flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and cloves and stir to combine well. Scoop one tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball with you hands.
Roll the ball in additional sugar and place is on the baking sheet. Repeat leaving about 2 inches in between each dough ball.
Using the bottom of a measuring cup lightly flatten each ball. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on a wire rack and enjoy with lots of milk. Store leftovers in an air-tight container.
