Orange & Molasses Cookies

Pre- heat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheet/sheets with parchment or silicone baking pad.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs large — room temperature
1/4 cup molesses
1 tablespoon grated orange peal
2 cups all- purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Cream softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Added eggs one at a time mixing well after each one. Added molasses and orange peal and mix. Sift together in separate bowl flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cloves then slowly add one third mixture at a time mixing after each addition until all is just incorporated. Do not over mix or your cookies will become tough.

Mix together:

1 cup of Turbinado sugar (you can use regular sugar) and 2 teaspoons cinnamon and mix together.

Using small ice cream or mellon scoop, form balls and roll each one in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 1 inch to 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
