This recipe is wonderful. Easy, tasty, perfect-looking cookies every time, and the way your house smells while they're baking is heavenly. Let the kids help by rolling the dough into balls and into the granulated sugar.
- Heat oven to 350.
- In large mixer bowl, beat the sugar, shortening,molasses and egg at medium speed until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients and mix at low speed until a soft dough forms.
- Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in a dish of granulated sugar and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie/baking sheets.
- Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
Wonderful taste from all the spices. I got 45 cookies, they baked for 10 minutes and they do spread a lot. The finished cookie was extremely soft. More cake-like than a cookie. I had to put parchment paper between the layers of cookies otherwise they would clump together.
Thanks for posting.
Really, really loved these! I don't like to cook with shortening, so I used butter. Really happy with the results - thanks for a great recipe!
great great cookie !! It was the scent of heaven while baking, and with a cup of tea, it was a taste of heaven
