Molasses Sugar Cookies
These are a wonderful chewy spice cookie. They are drop cookies that keep very well. I make them at the beginning of the holiday season and they keep all the way to New Year’s!

Melt the shortening in a large pan on the stove and cool.

Add sugar eggs and molasses beat well.

In a separate bowl sift dry ingredients together and add to the pan.

Mix well and chill 3 hours or overnight.

Form into walnut-size balls.

Roll in granulated sugar.

Place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8-10 minutes.
