Here are the ingredients: butter, brown sugar, white sugar, baking molasses (I use Brer Rabbit), eggs, flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cinnamon.
Cream together the butter and sugars until creamy. Add molasses and eggs and well mixed.
In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. I like to mix it the dry ingredients with a whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Roll the dough into 1″ balls. It’ll be a little sticky, but when you have them formed roll the balls in white sugar. Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper about 2″ apart. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until just set.
Remove from oven and then to a wire rack to cool.
You can hardly wait to eat one. Get your coffee ready.
