Ginger Krakles


Home | Recipes | G
Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 c Shortening
  • 2 c Brown sugar
  • 1/2 c Molasses
  • 2 Eggs
  • 5 c Flour
  • 4 ts Baking soda
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Ginger; see note
  • 1 ts Cloves
  • Sugar

Directions:

Cream shortening with brown sugar, molasses, and eggs until well mixed. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Chill until dough can be handled easily, about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into 1 inch balls; roll each ball in sugar to coat well. Place balls 3 inches apart on cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes until set but not browned.
 
NOTES : I use 2 teaspoons of ginger to get a more spicy cookie.
