How to Make Molasses Crinkles

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt and cloves. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and molasses until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer.
