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.

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2In 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.
  • 3Put 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.
  • 4Beat in the molasses, than stir in the flour until all is well combined.
  • 5Drop 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)
