Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

I first made these back in 2004. I believe I found the recipe over at the Nestle website. I brought most of them to work, during my usual Christmas Cookie Baking Bonanza, and these were definitely the favorites of the bunch. They have that 'melt in your moth' sort of feeling; very smooth and moist.

3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1½ tsp. cinnamon
1½ tsp. ginger
3/4 tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1½ cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup mild molasses
1 package butterscotch morsels

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt in small bowl

Beat butter, sugar, egg, and molasses in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour mixture until well blended. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely
