Chewy Molasses Sugar Cookies

These cookies are delicious!! A lady that use to work with me would make them every year around Christmas. I finally found the recipe on a Brer Rabbit Mild Molasses bottle.
I love how chewy they are, and they have just the right amount of spice.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

3/4 cup margarine (softened)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup Brer Rabbit Mild of Full Molasses
1 egg
2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger
granulated sugar

In a large bowl, with mixer at a low speed, beat together margarine and 1 cup sugar until creamy. Add molasses and egg, beating until well blended. In medium bowl, sifting flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cloves and ginger. Add to molasses mixture, mix well, cover and chill. Form dough into 1 inch balls. Roll each in sugar, place on a non-stick cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 375 for 6 to 8 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen.
