Molasses Cookies III

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is my son Ben's favorite cookie. For a tender tangier cookie use buttermilk in place of the milk.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Beat shortening ( or butter ) and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses, egg and 3 tablespoons of flour.
  • Sift together remaining flour and other dry ingredients. Mix together the vinegar, water and buttermilk. Add alternately to the molasses mixture and beat batter until it is very smooth.
  • Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12-15 minutes.
