This is a recipe that belonged to my grandmother . . . I still have the scrap of paper in her handwriting. They are chewy and delicious and remind me of Autumn.
2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda, cinnamon, ginger
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses
Mix flour, soda and cinnamon, ginger and salt. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and molasses. Stir in flour mixture just until blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls and put on greased cookie sheets 1/2" apart. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
