Mmmmm... molasses.

Here's another one for the recipe box... a fantastic recipe for molasses cookies from blog reader craighead gal.  Looks like I need to head back to the store for more ingredients.  Recipe on the jump. 

Her recipe:

Molasses Cookies

¾ cup melted butter
¼ cup dark molasses
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar reserved in small bowl (for coating)

Combine butter, sugar, molasses and egg; beat well. Combine remaining ingredients except sugar; add to molasses mixture, mixing well. Chill approximately 30 minutes.

Roll into one-inch balls; roll in reserved sugar. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper instead of greasing cookie sheet.) Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes. Makes about three dozen.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
