Ginger Molasses Cookies

Next to the beloved Christmas Crackles, these are my favorite cookie to bake during the holidays. They are soft and chewy and spiced just perfectly. I got the recipe from an old neighbor, Jennifer Lund. It makes plenty to share with friends or neighbors!
Ginger Molasses Cookies
1 1/2 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. molasses
4 1/2 c. flour
4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
granulated sugar, for rolling

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and molasses and mix well. Add dry ingredients. Roll into balls and roll in sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
*You can also chill the dough, and then roll it and cut it into shapes using cookie cutters. Bake a little less time since they are flat, or they will be pretty crispy!
