Molasses Cookies

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Shortening
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar; brown
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 c Molasses
  • 1 c Syrup, corn white or golden
  • 1 1/2 c Milk
  • 3 ts Baking soda
  • 1 ts Ginger
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 6 c Flour


This is from an Amish cookbook. I have modified the directions to explain
better: Cream the shortening and sugar. Add the eggs, molasses and syrup.
Then sift together the dry ingredients and alternately stir in the flour
and milk. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes in a 375 degree oven. The molasses in
the cookies make them very prone to burn so check often.. the recipe could
be halved as this makes about 80 cookies!!
