Recipe: Molasses Sugar Cookies

Linked to Works for Me Wednesday - see tip below regarding ice cream scoop

2  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1  3/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsps. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1  1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses (not blackstrap)
1 large egg
Granulated sugar for rolling

1. Whisk together the flour, soda, spices and salt.  In another bowl, beat the butter, sugar and molasses.  Add the egg and beat 1 minute more.  Blend in flour mixture until you have a soft dough.
2. Divide in half; wrap and freeze for 30 minutes.  [I don't divide in half and just refrigerate until very firm.] Shape teaspoonfuls into balls [A tiny ice cream scoop works great for this - spray first with Pam]; roll in sugar. [Use colored sugar for holidays.]  Place 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
3. Bake at 350' for 9-11 minutes, until flattened and crackle-topped.   Cool.
