Mrs Ahle's Molasses Cookies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Cookies, Canadian

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Melted shortening
  • 1/2 c Molasses
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 c Boiling water with 1 tsp
  • -bkg. soda added
  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Cloves
  • 1 ts Nutmeg


Mix in order given. The dough will be quite soft for nice spreading
cookies or you can add a bit more flour for a slightly firmer dough and a
more upstanding cookie. They will still be moist and irresistable. Drop by
heaping tsp. or T onto sheet, depending on size of cookie you want. I make
nice 4-5 bite size ones...my brother always made enormous cookies. (I don't
know if it's ungr. or greased.....I always grease it to be on the safe
side) :)

Bake in preheated 350 oven for 10 to 15 min. Cool on racks.

Note: This recipe is originally from the Nova Scotia area and is a beloved
recipe that came from a neighbourhood mom in Ontario. I am only sharing it
because I can't stand the thought of kids worldwide growing up
molasses-cookieless. :)
