Nanas Gingerbread and Molasses Cookies
A real taste from my childhood. I think this is one of those passed down recipes, and I'm glad my Nan wrote it down for me.
1 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Flour
¾ Cup Shortening
½ Tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Ginger
¼ Cup Molasses
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
2 Tsp. Baking Soda
Preheat oven to 375*
Cream the shortening and the sugar; add the egg and molasses and mix well. Stir together all the dry ingredients, then add to the molasses mixture.
With a teaspoon, scoop out small amounts of dough, about the size of a walnut, and roll them in white sugar.
Place the cookie balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and then flatten them with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar each time.
Bake for 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
