How to Make Molasses Cookies aka Mule Muffins
- Heat molasses to boiling and remove from heat.
- Mix in margarine or shortening and soda.
- Sift flour, baking powder, salt and ginger together and mix in.
- Chill dough well.
- Roll these out thin (1/16-1/8")and cut out to desired shape. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 5-7 minutes. Overcooking can result in a slight bitter flavor, but they get eaten just the same.
