“Plump sugar-topped cookies that taste just like Mary Jane candies. I tone down the ginger and cloves for my toddlers.” - by Rachel
Original recipe yields 2 1/2 dozen
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Mix together the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, molasses and egg in a large bowl.
- In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger, cloves and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well blended.
- For each cookie, shape a generous tablespoon of dough into a ball and roll in granulated sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until just set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I followed the recipe exactly. I was unsure about using the full amount of the dry mixture cause the dough got pretty crumbly and tough to mix but I did. I think if I make this recipe again I will use less dry ingredients and not roll in sugar before baking. I also wonder how this dough would work for cutouts? All in all this cookie isn't bad it's just not the fantastic cookie I was hoping for."
