Directions

  1. Preheat oven 350°F.
  2. Mix on low speed electric mixer shortening, molasses, 1 cup sugar and egg. Cream mixture.
  3. Slowly add the remaining ingredients except 1/2 cup of white sugar. Mix on medium (you may need to use your hands to finish).
  4. Get 1/2 cup white sugar and pour into plate. By teaspoonful roll dough into ball then into sugar. Place each cookie on greased baking sheet. Bake 5-10 minutes. You are looking for cookie to puff up and start to crack slightly.
