Tip: Keep home-baked treats in your freezer for a no-stress way to be ready for picnics and potlucks this summer.
This is a well-loved cookie at my house. Some Internet research told me this recipe is also a long-standing American cookie favorite. I found reference to this recipe being included in the 1956 version of the Betty Crocker Cookbook. That surprised me because I actually thought it might be older than that. So, with deference and credit to Betty Crocker, I'm sharing this family favorite molasses cookie. It is sweet, aromatic and goes perfectly with a glass of milk. The addition of cinnamon, ginger and ground cloves makes this a spice cookie with a mouthful of flavor.
