Made these cookies with the help of my little man the other day...
2 cups AP flour (I used whole wheat for 1/2 of it, and it worked fine)
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
Yoghurt covered raisins (or just regular ones)
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Combine flour, ginger, soda, cloves, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. Beat butter and 1 cup sugar in large bowl of electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add molasses and egg; beat until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed just until blended.
4. Drop dough by level 1/4 cupfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheets (if you don't have parchment paper, you can just spray the pan with oil - you might need to lower oven temp. if you do this), spacing 3 inches apart. Flatten each ball of dough until 2 inches in diameter with bottom of glass that has been dipped in additional sugar. Press 7-8 raisins into the top of each cookie.
5. Bake 11-12 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; slide parchment paper and cookies onto countertop. Cool completely.
Makes about 1 dozen (4-in) cookies.
