I think I have found a new favorite smell.
Warm molasses cookies.
They are the most perfect winter smell.
And have them with a mug of milk.
3/4 cup margarine, melted
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup of molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground cloves
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 cup white sugar
- In a medium bowl, mix together the melted margarine, 1 cup sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger; blend into the molasses mixture. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until tops are cracked. Cool on wire racks.
