Molasses Crinkle Cookies

These are a family favorite. I just drizzled some white chocolate that I had left over to make them a little more festive.


1 1/2 C Shortening
2 C Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 C Molasses
4 1/2 C Flour
4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cloves
2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and molasses. Combine flour with all the spices and mix together well. Slowly add flour to the other ingredients.

Roll cookies into balls and then roll in granulated sugar. Flatten just slightly on the cookie sheet. {I just used the palm of my hand}.

Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes. These are better slightly under cooked so make sure you watch them carefully. {I did mine for 8 and it was a little too long.}.

Let cool and enjoy!
