Today I'd love to share these wonderful molasses cookies with you.
My great grandmother Bradley's recipe has been a treasure to my family for many years.
Whenever it's mentioned, everyone lines up for as many as they can coax me into giving them, and it was that way when I was a child to.
They are sweet, but not overly.
They are a touch caky, but moist.
They are simply delicious!
1 cup shortening (I use butter)
1 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1 cup molasses
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ginger,
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup sour milk (just add a touch of vinegar to the milk)
4 1/2-5 cups flour
Stir it all together, spoon onto cookie sheet, bake 350F
This makes a big batch!
Also if you like you can roll it into logs and chill before cutting.
These cookies are great frozen once cooked, so you can have a stash in your freezer.
Thanks for dropping by!
Perhaps you have a recipe that has been passed down in your family that you love...
if so, do feel free to share!
