This was my Grandmother's recipe. It is a molasses cookie with coffee in it.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Dissolve the baking soda in the coffee.
  • Cream the shortening with the white sugar. Beat in the eggs, coffee mixture, molasses, vinegar, 1/2 cup of the cocoa powder, spices, and flour. Dough should be thick and slightly sticky. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool, then glaze.
  • To Make Glaze: Combine the confectioner's sugar, 1/4 cup cocoa, and enough water to achieve a desired spreading consistency. Beat until smooth.
