DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cream shortening and sugar; add eggs and molasses, mixing well.
  • Add dry ingredients and continue mixing. Dough should form a ball.
  • Cover bowl with plastic and pop in the fridge for 20-30 minutes until dough is pliable.
  • Form dough into 1-inch balls; roll in EXTRA white sugar (you CAN skip this step, but why would you want to?).
  • Place on UNgreased cookie sheet, about two inches apart. They will spread out, so you don't need to press them down.
  • Bake 12-13 minutes until top is crackly. Cool on rack, then store in covered container.
  • During humid weather: store in tightly sealed container or they will get VERY limp and bedraggled.
