My husbands grandmother's recipe. I had to use almost another cup of flour over what this recipe called for as the recipe was given to me very loosely. Cookies are crisp and have a nice, mellow flavour. I prefer them without the filling.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar into shortening.
  2. Add molasses and hot water, mix well.
  3. Add other ingredients, mixing flour til batter is soft but not sticky.
  4. On a well floured surface, roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cookies are best when they are thick and large.
  5. Cook at 250 til edges brown (about 10-12 minutes).
  6. In saucepan, cook filling ingredients til quite thick (about 10 minutes). When cookies cool, use filling to make sandwiches.
