Recipe for Crisp Rolled Molasses Cookies


1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoon ginger, ground
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg; beaten
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup molasses, dark
2 1/2 cup flour, all-purpose; divided


Cream shortening, sugar, ginger, and salt. Add egg; mix well. Combine soda and molasses; stir well until frothy, and add to creamed mixture. Add 2 cups flour; turn onto a floured board and add enough of the remaining flour to make a dough that can be rolled.

Using a small amount of dough at a time, roll to 1/8" thickness; cut with a floured 3" cutter. Place on greased baking sheets; bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. These cookies keep well in a covered container.
