Great Grandma Bradley Molasses Cookies

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!

Molasses Cookies
-Grandma Bradley

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!

Well you had me at Great Grandmother because those are the BEST recipes because back then, no one cared about fat and sugar hahaha! These look so good and it's nice that you can freeze them. I tend to eat things like this right out of the freezer though!!
