Day 36: Spice Snaps

I baked these on a rainy Michigan day. When the boys came home from school it was a perfect warm treat. Cousin to the popular ginger snap cookie, these spice snaps will leave your taste buds happy and wanting more.

The boys suggested making an ice cream sandwich out of them in the future, I think they are on to something! Maybe with cinnamon ice cream?

Spice Snaps

1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of butter (softened)
1 egg
1/4 cup of molasses
2 1/4 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup sugar (to roll dough in)

In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and spices, set aside.
Mix together 1 cup of sugar, butter, egg and molasses

Slowly add in dry ingredients. Mix well.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into one inch balls.

Roll in 1/4 cup of sugar

Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completly or until cool enough to eat :).
