Soft Molasses Cookies



BEST MOLASSES COOKIES EVER!!! Yes, I am that excited about these. I didn't have allspice and nutmeg, so I just added cinnamon and ginger.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup shortening (3/4 cup correct amount)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar (reserved for coating raw dough balls)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (see note below)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions:
  1. Cream together shortening and brown sugar.
  2. Stir in egg and molasses and mix well.
  3. Fold in dry ingredients and stir.
  4. Cover and chill till firm (1-2 hours).
  5. Preheat oven to 350°.
  6. Roll dough into small balls and roll in white sugar.
  7. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes.
  9. Leave on sheet one minute until set.
  10. I changed the amount of salt in here. My original recipe calls for 1 tsp of salt but that may be too much for some. A few people have made it as is (the majority) with no complaints on salt, however a few commented it was too much. I think 1/2 tsp can be used with no alterations to the recipe. I will leave it up to you either way you still WIN !
