These wonderful soft cut-out cookies are a recipe of my grandmothers - she used to stir these sticky, THICK, beauties by hand!! In fact, she was hesitant to share the recipe because of how much work they are to roll out! ;) The dough needs to be REALLY cold for ease of rolling, otherwise they'll stick to EVERYTHING!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cream shortening and sugar, then add eggs.
  2. Add honey, molasses, & hot water mixed with soda (prior to adding to mixture).
  3. Add cinnamon, cloves, salt, and flour.
  4. Dough will be REALLY sticky - chill dough at LEAST 24 hours (4 days is recommended).
  5. Roll on well-floured surfaced to about 1/4" thickness and cut. Sprinkle with sugar before baking.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes - they will puff up while baking.
