“A colleague gave me this recipe and DH loves them. Besides tasting great, you use only one mixing bowl! :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Put margarine, brown sugar, molasses, egg, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, clove, and ginger into mixing bowl and mix.
  3. Roll into walnut size balls.
  4. Put about 1/2 cup of regular sugar in cereal size bowl, and 1/2 cup water in ramekin size dish.
  5. Roll dough ball in sugar.
  6. Place wide apart on slightly greased cookie sheet; dip a glass into water and flatten the cookie.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes, or until done to your family's preferences.
  8. NOTE: If it is a dark cookie sheet it will take less time than on a brand new shiny sheet; and if they sit on the hot sheet after removing from oven they will harden even more. Some like these cookies hard but I do not.
