DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the butter, shortening and sugar in a LARGE mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until creamy.
  • Add the eggs and continue beating, the add the molasses. Mix well.
  • Add the spices and flour a bit at a time, using the low speed on your mixer. As the dough thickens, you'll have to increase this to medium and possibly high speed. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. The dough is quite stiff and it tries to crawl out of the bowl.
  • Moisten your hands and roll the dough lightly into one inch balls.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet about 2-inches apart. Flatten the dough to about 1/4-inch thickness with an egg flipper or your fingers. (Personally, I skip this step as the cookies flatten and spread out themselves so it saves some time).
  • Bake at 375° for six to eight minutes. Remove cookies from sheet and cool on a wire rack. Count quickly!
