Sugar & Spice - And Everything Nice!

Nothing says Christmas more than sugar & spice. These soft molasses crinkle cookies say it all - Merry Christmas. This recipe has been handed down from my husband's side of the family. You have to make them, not only are they delicious they will also make your house smell AMAZING when they are baking.

Ready For Santa!

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses

Sift Together:
2 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground cloves
3/4 tsp ginger

Mix thoroughly, form into balls the size of walnuts. Place about 2" apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes in moderate oven (350 degrees). Sprinkle sugar on cookies while warm.


Merry Christmas!!
