It's not Christmas unless there are cookies

It was 2 days before Christmas and we didn't have cookies in the house. Of course this would not do. So the hubby and I warmed up the oven - which gloriously warmed the house - and made Molasses Spice Cookies.

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2t of baking soda
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1t ground ginger
  • 1.5t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4t ground allspice
  • 3/4t ground cloves
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2c dark brown sugar, packed 
  • 1/2c granulated sugar + 1/3c for rolling cookies
  • 1 large egg
  • 1t vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsulphered molasses

Hubby and I really, really liked these. I think I preferred it with the optional glaze, but only lightly glazed.
