Grandma’s Molasses Cookies

Original Molasses Cookie RecipeThis is from my Grandma Ella.  I’m not sure how old the recipe is but my Aunt Jinny’s copy implies that this recipe was passed down from my Great Grandma Neperud.

1 C. white sugar
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. shortening
2 eggs
1/2 C. molasses
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ginger
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking soda
4 1/2 C. flour sifted
1/2 C. sour milk or hot water

Cream shortening and sugars and then add eggs.  Mix soda in with molasses and sour milk and add to sugar mixture.  Add flour and spices and chill dough.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. (Personal note: I made these yesterday and made them into 1 inch balls, rolled them in sugar and baked about 12-13 min.)

From the kitchen of Ella Meyer

    I tried these yesterday and they were fantastic. I swore these must have been the ones my own grandma made.
