    Old Fashioned Soft Molasses Cookies

    • 3 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup shortening (melted)
    • 1 cup molasses
    • 2 tablespoons warm water
    • 1 beaten egg
    1. Mix dry ingredients. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly then let stand for 10 minutes. Roll out on a floured board to about 1/4-1/2″(depends on how thick you want it), cut out shapes ( I use a drinking glass for round cookies) and bake in a hot oven at 400F. for 8 minutes.
    2. Makes 4 dozen.
    3. Optional: Top with cream cheese icing or add 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts to the dough.
    4. Store in an air tight container.
