How to make it

  • Combine melted shortening, 2 cups sugar and molasses; add eggs.
  • Stir together remaining ingredients, then gradually blend into molasses mixture.
  • Chill in refrigerator.
  • Scoop out dough using #40 scoop or roll into 1" balls.
  • Roll in sugar and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 11 to 12 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. They should still be puffed and look a little underdone when you take them out, they finish cooking as they cool.
  • Let stand on baking sheet for a minute, then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Makes 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
