This recipe is from an old cookbook -- I put my own recipe notes next to the ingredients listed...

  • Preheat oven to 350*.  Mix butter, sugar, egg and molasses.  (I used my Bosch because I made 4 batches at once!)  Stir the dry ingredients together, and then mix those in.  Roll dough into about 1″ balls, then roll in some sugar and place on a buttered stainless steel baking pan about 2″ apart — if you still have non-stick pans, line them with parchment paper.  Bake about 9-11 minutes, depending on your oven and how crispy you like them.  We like them chewy in the middle, so we only did about 9 minutes.
