kate craddock’s gingersnaps

here it is: the infamous late-night snack of claremonters in the know. recipe by kate.

molasses cookies:
3 sticks butter
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup molasses
2 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

1. preheat oven to 350
2. melt butter in microwave, add sugar and molasses, let cool a little (just so it doesn’t cook the egg), beat egg, add
3. mix dry ingredients, add
4. put on cookie sheet, tsp sized dollops (they spread out a LOT) no need to grease sheet haha these are all butter!
5. bake 8-10 minutes (they puff up at about 8 minutes depending on your oven- best time to take them out is right when most of them have fallen down flat after that)
*they’re not gingersnaps so they’re supposed to be chewy
