Sorry for the fact the my posts have been fewer these days. Work has kept me pretty busy, along with my children and all the skiing we have been doing before the season ends. I thought I would repost this great Molasses Cookie recipe. The key to a great Molasses cookies is the Ginger. And these cookies are awesome!

1c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. margarine or shortening
1/2 c. molasses
2 egg
4 c. AP Flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 Tlb. ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
5 tsp. baking powder
**Preheat oven to 350 degrees
**Cream together the sugars, margarine, molasses until light and fluff. Add egg and continue to beat.
**Combine all of the dry ingredients together, and add them in slowly to the creamed mixture, and continue to mix.
**Chill the dough in the refrigerator for about an hour, before rolling into walnut sized balls.
**Coat each ball with granulated sugar before placing on sheet pan. Press the ball down slightly.
