Cinnamon Cookies

By Margery Krome

My grandmother Marge used to make these every year when she hosted my mother’s Holiday pottery show at her house. They are awesome served with hot cider!

This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies.

1 cup butter (or margarine) softened
1 ½ cups sugar
1 egg
1 ½ tablespoons molasses
2 ¼ cups flour
1 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
1 heaping tablespoon cinnamon

Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in egg and molasses, blending well.

Mix flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture, mixing well.

Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet,
Form into small balls about ¾ inch diameter and arrange on a cookie sheet. Do not place too close together. Press each ball with a glass dipped in sugar. The thinner they are, the crisper they will be.

Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool about one minute before
attempting to remove to cooling rack.
