Why I Love This Recipe

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

1/4 cup molasses
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda

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.
