Step 1

Cream butter; add sugar gradually. Beat until fluffy. Add egg and molasses; blend. Stir or sift together flour, soda, salt, and spices; blend into butter mixture. Roll small portions of dough into balls about the size of walnuts; roll in granulated sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until they have melted and puffed. For crisper cookies, bake until they have flattened. Cookies bake down to form perfect rounds with traditional gingersnap cracks on top.
