It’s rainy. Not letting up. Cold. A good day for cookies if you ask me.
I decided to bake these Spiced Molasses Cookies. They are simple to make. Delicious. And your house will smell great.
- 1 cup Sugar
- 3/4 cup Vegetable Shortening
- 1/4 cup Molasses
- 1 whole Egg
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cloves
- 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 2-1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix Sugar, Shortening, Molasses, & Egg together until well combined.
Dump in all the dry ingredients, stirring them together lightly. Mix everything until the dough is totally combined.
Bake for 9-12 minutes….you know they are good to go when they are browned and cracks have formed.
Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool (or not- they’re good warm and chewy too)….they’ll become crisp.
Eat some and freeze some for later……HMMMMMMM!
Happy cookie eating.
