How to Make Great Grandma Sabin's Molasses Cookies


  • 1in large mixing bowl mix together the sugar, molasses, crisco until well blended. Add cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly add in the flour alternating with the water until dough forms a ball. You may not use all the flour.
  • 2roll out dough to 1/4 in thickness and cut into fairly good sized circles. My grandma had a large scalloped edge cookie cutter that she only used for these cookies, but I use a drinking glass, so anything works!
  • 3Put cookies on greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with sugar. Or you could wait until they were done and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
    Bake in 350* oven for about 8-10 min. kinda depends on how big your cookies are. But they should be cake like and soft not crunchy and hard (although if that happens they are wonderful dunked in your coffee!)
