Molasses Sugar Cookies

These are cookies that we really love. They remind us of Ginger Snaps but are soft. All three of our children won Blue Ribbons at the Utah State Fair with these cookies.

Molasses Sugar Cookies


3/4 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup light molasses

1 egg

2 cups sifted flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. salt

In large bowl, cream together shortening and 1 cup sugar. Add molasses and egg; beat well. Sift together flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and salt; add to first mixfture. Mix well; cover and chill. Form into 1" balls; roll each in granulated sugar and place on greased cookie sheets about 2" apart. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

These are the best...we made them just the other day (a quadrupal batch) and they were gone in just two days. My kids beg me to make them. Thanks for posting.
