sugar & spice

so while i'm not ready to start making christmas goodies for my friends & family, i am certainly ready to start eating christmas goodies...hence these little ginger babies! i just love gingersnaps, they make the whole house smell like christmas!
-3/4 cup butter
-1 cup brown sugar (packed)
-1 egg
-1/4 cup molasses
-2 1/4 cups flour
-2 teaspoons soda
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 teaspoon ginger
-1/2 teaspoon cloves
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-sugar (for rolling)

mix butter, brown sugar, egg & molasses. blend in remaining ingredients (except sugar). cover and chill 1 hour. preheat oven to 375. shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar, place on lightly greased or parchment covered cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes (or until just set). makes about 4 dozen.

hope you're having a sweet day too!
xo, carly
