Ingredients

  • 0.5 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 0.8 cup butter 
  • teaspoon cinnamon 
  •  eggs 
  • 1.5 cups flour all-purpose sifted
  • cup granulated sugar for coating
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground ginger 
  • 0.1 cup blackstrap molasses 
  • 0.3 teaspoon salt 
  • tablespoon sugar 

Equipment

  • bowl
  • baking sheet
  • oven

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.Beat in egg and molasses.In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, salt and spices, and blend into creamed mixture.Shape into small balls and roll in additional sugar to coat.
  2. Place the balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  3. Bake in 350 degree oven for no more than 8 - 9 minutes, until just set. (They are going to be soft and their tops just slightly cracked at this point, but don't worry - they harden quickly. Removing them at the right time will ensure the perfect chewiness.)
