This recipe belonged to my great-grandmother (for whom I’m named) and has been a family favorite for years.
First, I melted the butter.
While the butter was melting and cooling, I mixed together some of the other ingredients. I put the egg, sugar and molasses in a big bowl.
I also mixed together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl- flour, cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, salt and baking soda.
Then I mixed the butter into the molasses mixture and mixed that with the flour combination.
After refrigerating the dough for an hour, I spooned the dough into 1 inch balls and rolled them in sugar.
I then baked the tray for 8 minutes.
This is what the cookies looked like when they were done, and if I must say, they were delicious!
