Molasses Cookies



I'm all about the healthy stuff. But, this time of year I have to pull out a recipe that my family LOVES. Once a year isn't going to hurt a thing. :)

3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Beat the sugar with the butter, egg and molasses. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl. Preheat oven to 375. I scoop them into 1 tablespoon size balls and bake about 8-10 minutes. This will be personal preference. My kids like them chewier, and my husband likes them crispy. I hope they are enjoyed in other homes as much as here. :)
