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
Mix together in a bowl the sugar, molasses, shortening & egg. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, salt & all spice. Shape the dough into a large ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours (or freezer for 15-20 minutes).
Form dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. This recipe makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
