Yield: about 6 dozen

These very tasty cookies have just the right punch of spice and molasses. Our tester said they reminded her of Thanksgiving.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two baking sheets.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar. Add the molasses and egg and beat until smooth. Sift together the flour, soda, salt, and spices. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well. Drop by the teaspoonful onto the baking sheets. Flatten with a fork dipped in milk.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the sheets from the oven when the cookies are still puffy and light brown. Allow to rest on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
