Santa's Spice Cookies!

Okay, I just noticed that these were somewhat similar to the cookies in the post below, but I'm still posting them cause I have to call my mom everytime I make them, and they are a bit of comfort food for me. They remind me of my childhood:)
Also I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!!!

  • 2 1/2 C flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 3/4 C butter
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 C molasses
Sift dry ingredients together (except for sugar). Beat butter, sugar, and egg till light and fluffly. Beat flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with molasses.

Once dough is mixed, place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease cookie sheet. Shape dough in to 1/2" balls, roll in powder sugar, place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar as soon as pulled out from the oven.
