Joe Frogger's Jumbo Molasses Cookies
Source of Recipe
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.
