Ahhhh, what can I say? I love molasses.


  1. Heat oven to 375*.
  2. Mix brown sugar, shortening, egg, and molasses in a bowl.
  3. Mix in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar.
  4. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls, dip in granulated sugar.
  5. Place balls, sugared sides up, about 3" apart on greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake just until set, 10 to 12 mins.
  7. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
  8. Enjoy!

Made these tonight. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out wonderfully. AND I actually got 4 dozen cookies when it said I'd get 4 dozen. That NEVER happens for me.
