Miss Emily's Ginger Cookies- Recipe Monday

Miss Emily's Ginger Cookies
(our variation)

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup molasses
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 1/2 cups of plain flour

Cream sugar, egg, and butter together. Add to this mixture the rest of the ingredients. Roll into small balls and then roll them in sugar. place on a cookie sheet and slightly flatten. Bake for 5- 7 minutes at 375 degrees. Cool on rack.

This is my little ones favorite cookie. They are soft and chewy and not as heavily ginger flavored as many other versions.
