One of my favorite ways to show Lunch Box Love is by including a homemade cookie for dessert. Here is one of our very favorite cookie recipes.
Grandma Morgan's Molasses Cookies
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Molasses
- 3/4 cup Shortening (I prefer the butter flavor shortening.)
- 1 Egg
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon All Spice
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
Form dough into balls and place on a lightly greased (or nonstick) cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. This recipe makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
