Mrs. Yoder's Gingersnaps

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Sugar
1  cup  Margarine, OR
1/2  cup  Lard, AND
1/2  cup  Butter
2  teaspoons  Soda
1  cup  Molasses
1  tablespoon  Ginger
1/4  cup  Water, hot
1 1/2  cups  Flour

Mix together sugar, shortening, molasses and ginger. Dissolve soda in hot water. Add to sugar mixture. Stir in flour. Pinch off little pieces of dough the size of walnuts. Place on greased baking sheet. Space them, as when put in oven they will puff up and when done will flatten out and crackle all over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, checking often as they burn easily. Let cool before removing from pan. Source: Reta Deaver, Stamford (Nebr.)
