Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tsp. baking soda

  • 1-3/4

    tsp. ground ginger

  • 1/2

    tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1/4

    tsp. ground cloves

    cups sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/4

    cup molasses

  • 1

Directions

Directions: Preheat oven to 325°F. Sift the flour, baking soda, and spices into a bowl. Set aside. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg, molasses, and lemon juice. Mix until combined. Incorporate the flour mixture and mix on low speed until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to over mix. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in sugar and place them 2 inches apart on lightly greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, until the cookies are just firm to the touch. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack for cooling.
