Cookie Time

I bought Black Treacle for the first time last year (main reason being the awesome Halloween tins it came in), and haven't done much with it since.
So because I don't want it to go bad (can treacle even go bad?), I made some cookies!
And they are SO DELICIOUS.

Black Treacle Cookies
155g (cup + 1 tsp) butter
200g (¾ cup + 2 tbsp) sugar
 60g (4 tbsp) black treacle
1 egg
250g (1¼ cup) flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground cloves
1 pinch salt
additional sugar

Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
Add sugar, egg and treacle, beat well.
Sieve together dry ingredients, then add to the mixture and stir until combined.
Chill for three hours or over night.
Preheat oven to 190°C.
Form dough into walnut sized balls, roll them in the additional sugar and place on parchment lined baking trays.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Don't worry if they come out a bit crispier than you like, just store them in an air tight container, and they'll be chewy and delicious the next day!

*the original recipe also calls for ½ tsp ground ginger, if that's your thing
