Soft Molasses Cookies

1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2.25 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar.

2. Scoop dough by tablespoonfuls, rolling into balls. Dip tops into granulated sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls, sugared sides up, about 2 inches apart.

3. Bake 8 minutes, just until set; DO NOT OVERBAKE. Allow to cool for two minutes on baking sheet before moving to cooling rack.

Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.

About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
