Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Keep butter at room temperature. It must be soft , so leave it for a while before you start, or warm it very slightly in a microwave - just a few seconds until it is soft, not molten.
  • Put the sugar, butter, molasses and cinnamon in a bowl and beat them together with a wooden spoon - mix very thoroughly until no lumps of butter can be seen.
  • Add the flour and mix it in until it forms a soft, pliable dough.
  • Lightly grease two cookie sheets.
  • Take pieces of the dough - about the size of 2 walnut s- roll it into a ball with your hands.
  • Roll out a cylinder.
  • Curl it into a spiral (you know the shape!).
  • Place on a greased cookie sheet.
  • They will spread a little when cooking, so leave about half an inch space between them.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes (checking and rotating the trays halfway through, if required), until they're just barely darkening at the edges.
  • Let them cool for a few minutes on the trays before attempting to transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
  • Leave them with a little note, if you want!
