How to Make ~ Gram's Chewy Molasses Cookies ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Lightly spray baking sheet and set aside.

    In a medium sized bowl, cream shortening or oil with the sugar.
  2. Add the egg and molasses and mix well ( I just use a wooden spoon for this. )
  3. Next, add 1 cup of flour along with the spices and baking soda. Mix well. Now, add remaining flour, just enough to be able to roll a ball. I used approx 2 cups altogether. You want the ball to keep shape to roll into sugar.
  4. Make balls about the size of a golf ball. Roll to coat in sugar and place on baking sheet..a few inches apart.
  5. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or when puffed and cracking. They will look a bit undercooked, but will finish baking on sheet, when removed from oven.

    Let set on sheet for about 3 - 4 minutes, before moving to cooling rack. I sometimes sprinkle extra sugar on while still warm.

    Enjoy!
