  • Servings: 6 dozen cookies
  • Total Time: 3 Hours 45 Min
  • Main Ingredient: Molasses


  • 3 cups enriched flour (sifted)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. ginger
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 1/3 cups Grandma's® Original Molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar


Heat oven to 400F. Sift first six ingredients into a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fingers to resemble coarse meal. Heat molasses just to boiling point; add vinegar and gradually stir into flour-shortening mixture. Chill dough until stiff enough to roll (3 hours or overnight). Roll dough 1/16 inch thick on lightly floured board. Shape with cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until edges have lightly browned. Cool. Store in tightly closed tin box.
