    Recipe Introduction

    Love these! Makes large cookies.

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup water
    1 cup molasses
    2 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. ground cloves
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp. ground allspice


    Cream the shortening and sugar; combine the mixture with 1 cup water and molasses.

    Sift together the dry ingredients and add alternately to the creamed mixture with the liquids. Blend well after each addition.

    Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a well-greased cookie sheet, making five cookies to a sheet (or dough can be chilled overnight and rolled to cut with cookie cutters).

    Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
