Serves 2 1/2 dozen | Prep Time 20 minutes | Cook Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 c. molasses
1 tsp. vinegar
1 heaping Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. boiling water (more if needed)
2 tsp. soda
3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder


Pour boiling water over shortening. Beat in molasses and vinegar. Add the rest of the ingredients.



Roll out onto floured board - about 1/4 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out big cookies and place on greased cookie sheet.



Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.*


These are best when you frost them with chocolate frosting. That's what my Gramma and Mother always did. These were one of those cookies we got when Autumn rolled around.

Notes

This is a recipe from my grandmother. There were no directions - just ingredients. So, I had to add directions as I remembered. You might have to adjust the baking times.
