Ginger Crinkles

These cookies are highly addictive - even for an ol' chocolate lover like myself.  They're even a little healthy with half whole wheat flour.  Once I tried with all whole wheat flour, but I don't recommend it.  The batch pictured below are mini-sized, about two inches in diameter.  Very cute!

Ginger Crinkles
from BYU Food Services

6 Tbsp. butter 
1 c. brown sugar  
1 egg  
¼ c. molasses   
1 c. flour   
1 c. whole wheat flour 
½ tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger 
½ tsp. cloves
½ c. sugar 

In a large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, egg, and molasses.  Sift or stir together dry ingredients (except ½ c. sugar).  Add to molasses mixture and mix until blended.  Cover and chill dough.  Form into balls and roll in sugar.  Bake for 8-10 min. at 375˚ until cracks form on surface.
