Molasses cookies

Posted: Wednesday, December 09, 2009

1-1/2 cups shortening

2 cups granulated sugar, plus more for rolling cookies

1/2 cup dark molasses

2 large eggs

4 teaspoons baking soda

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cloves - generous

1 teaspoon ground ginger - generous

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon - generous

1 teaspoon salt

Melt shortening. Add sugar, molasses and eggs; beat well. Combine flour, soda and spices. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture, then beat. Chill dough in refrigerator overnight.

Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar.

Bake for 8 minutes, in a preheated 375 oven, and enjoy!

You should take them out of the oven before they "flatten." I always place them onto paper towels.

They will flatten once they are out of the oven.

Kitchen Ade note: This recipe makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.
