    Tbsp molasses

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream 1 cup sugar with butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in egg and molasses. 2. In a medium bowl, stil together flour, baking soda, and spices. Add to butter mixture and blend well. 3. Fill a shallow bowl with sugar. Break off walnut-sized pieces of dough and roll into balls; roll balls in sugar. Arrange on greased cookie sheets and bake until golden brown about 10 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks. 4. Meanwhile, make glaze. Combine powdered sugar with 1 Tbsp water and stir until smooth, then stir in lemon juice (I use only lemon juice and no water). Drizzle over cookies.
