This recipe in our family is lovingly joked as the mountains of cookies recipe because it makes a ton of cookies. These cookis also always taste best when fully cooled, usually the day after baking.

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

1/2 lb
butter or other shortening melted and cooled to lukewarm
2 1/2 c
sugar
1 tsp
cloves
1 tsp
cinnamon
1
egg, beaten
1/4 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
baking soda
1/4 c
plus 1 tablespoon warm water
1/4 c
molasses
3 1/2 c
flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar cloves (don't forget to grind or crush the cloves if you use whole), cinnamon, egg and salt. Beat well.
3
Put 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon warm water in a small cup, dissolve the baking soda in it, than stir into the butter/shortening mix.
4
Beat in the molasses, than stir in the flour until all is well combined.
5
Drop the dough in well seperated, walnut size lumps onto greased baking sheets. (if you don't grease baking sheets you will have trouble getting cookies off)
6
Bake for 7 - 10 minutes until cookies are just baked through and starting to brown.
7
Cool on wire racks. Cookies will be wrinkly, soft on the inside and crisp on the edges.
