Sorghum Sugar Cookies

I love baking with sorghum. It gives all your baked goods a real old-fashioned homemade flavor, and prolongs keeping time.
You can get sorghum more places now than when I first started using it. I get mine from a Mennonite community in Middle Tennessee called Muddy Pond. You can also usually find it in supermarkets that carry local foods. A good substitute, if you can't find it, is half molasses and half dark Karo syrup.
