OMG Molasses cookies part II

NO JOKE SAHHS. We both made molasses cookies in the same week, without planning it: skills. They are both looking like poo, delicious, and powerful delights.

I got my recipe from the Silver Palate, basically if you want your baked goods to taste like they're from a legit bakery, use their recipes. I've received such results from the zuccini bread, banana bread, semolina bread, and molasses cookies thusfar.

I definitely cooked mine longer (but then again my oven fails)

This section of the book is entitled: The Cookie Basket, in case you were wondering

1 1/2 sticks sweet butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
(nutmeg wouldn't hurt)

Preheat to 350

Melt butter, add sugar, molasses, mix then add lightly beaten egg

Sift dry ingredients, then mix in

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto aluminum foil (on top of your baking sheet) leaving ample room between each cookie (batter will be wet and expands)

Cook for 8-10 minutes, take out while still soft, cool on the foil

excellent! add some candied citrus peel on top
