My great grandmother used to make these cookies all the time. When she passed in 1996, no one else made them, until recently when I found her recipe box. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do. Note: When I made them, I didn't bother counting to see how many cookies came from one full batch, I will however estimate.
- Cream sugar, and shortening in a bowl. Add eggs and molasses.
- In another bowl mix dry ingredients together and mix with the wet ingredients. Refrigerate overnight.
- Pre-heat oven to 350.
- Roll into 2 inch balls and roll into sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
