How to Make Gramma Vi's Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies
- Melt shortening in a 3 or 4 qt. saucepan over low heat. Let cool.
- Add sugar, molasses, & egg. Beat well
- Sift together flour, soda, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Add to first mixture. Mix well & chill.
- Make 1 inch balls roll in sugar and place on greased cookie sheet. (I have made the balls twice that size and flattened slightly with a fork also.)
Bake@ 350 X 8-10 minutes. You will learn when they are done to your own liking as you make them!!
