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

3/4  c  Molasses
1/2  c  Shortening or lard
1  t  Baking soda
2 1/4  c  Flour
1 3/4  ts  Baking powder
1  t  Salt
  ds  Ginger
  ds  Cinnamon

Heat molasses to boiling. Remove from fire and stir in shortening and baking soda. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Mix everything together. Chill 1 hour. Roll into balls and press with the bottom of a stoneware jar or drinking glass. Bake at 350 degrees for about 6 minutes. A note about Molasses Cookies: Molasses cookies are very common, but they are not easy to make, the reason being that there is no rule you can work by which will answer in all cases. All molasses does not work alike. Some kinds will bear more water than others, and the weather has to be taken into consideration. You can use more water in cold weather than warm, at times 1/2 molasses, 1/2 water. Be very careful and do not work more than necessary to mix. Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the book, typos and all.
