Dusty Miller Molasses Cookies




Anytime is a great time for Dusty Miller Molasses Cookies, but the ginger in them makes me LOVE them in the fall!  LOVE!  These tasty cookies remind me a bit of a snickerdoodle but with a lot more flavor.  I love the full flavor molasses adds and these cookies are soft and chewy.  So very good with a glass of cold milk.

Dusty Miller Molasses Cookies

3/4 C. shortening or butter 
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 C. molasses
2 1/4 C. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
a few tablespoons of sugar for rolling the dough in

Beat shortening or butter, sugar, egg, and molasses until well blended.  Add flour, baking soda, ginger and cinnamon, and mix well.  Roll into walnut sized balls and then roll in sugar.  Place on cookie sheet a couple of inches apart and flatten with the bottom of a glass.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Joy's Notes:  In my oven, I can take these out at 8 minutes and then let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 8 minutes and they finish cooking.  They will still look a tiny bit under done when you remove them from the oven.
