from Grandma Olinda Chapin
Grandma made these for Mom for every pregnancy
3 dozen
6 T. butter or soy margarine
1/2 cup sugar                    Beat together until light
1/2 cup Grandma's Robust Molasses*
1 egg or Energy Egg Replacer
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Mix with butter mixture until well combined. Freeze twon hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Form into balls and roll inot sugar. Bake for 10-15 minutes.  I find these freeze really well, without the sugar coating. Freeze the balls. When ready roll in the sugar and bake.
*We use blackstrap molasses for extra nutrition. One tablespoon has 20% of your calcium for the day and lots of iron! Makes a stronger tasting cookie, but delicious.
