Why I Love This Recipe

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.


Ingredients You'll Need

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


Directions

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.
