This is a recipe from a friend of mine – much to my surprise, a favorite of the kiddos!

Molasses Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses (full flavor)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

    Preheat oven to 375.

  1. Melt shortening & allow to cool a bit. Combine shortening, sugar, molasses & egg. Add dry ingredients. Mix (you may need to finish mixing by hand with spoon rather than mixer). Roll into little balls. Bake @ 375 fro 8 – 10 min
  2. * Yummy if sprinkled with sugar right out of the oven.
