Sugar-Topped Molasses Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 with the rack in the center position. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Work with one batch of dough at a time. Cut the dough into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and roll it in the sugar. Dip the bottom of a glass in the sugar and press the balls down until they are 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Place on the baking sheet.
Bake one sheet at a time for 12-14 minutes or until the tops feel set to the touch. Remove from the baking sheet with a spatula and transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
Repeat with the second batch of dough.
