Why I Love This Recipe

Barbara reports the cookies were delicious and great for dunking in coffee!

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup vegetable shortening (Crisco)
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
Almond slivers


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Using electric mixer at low speed, cream the shortening and sugar until thoroughly combined. Add the egg and molasses and beat until completely incorporated.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger and add to the mixture. Stir until combined.

Roll the dough into balls about 1-inch in diameter. Place ½-inch apart on cookie sheets. Flatten the balls slightly with your fingertips.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Cool on wire rack

May place almond slivers on cookies before baking
