These cookies have a strong ginger taste...it's one of my favorite cookies. The amount of ginger can be adjusted to your tastes.
10 oz all purpose flour
3 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 oz butter, room temp
1 1/3 cups sugar, plus more for rolling
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
Mix together flour, ginger, soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and molasses. Mix in flour until blended. Using a tablespoon, shape dough into balls. Roll each ball into sugar. Place on cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven, 350F, about 10 -12 mins.
