Best Cookies: Old-Fashioned Molasses Cookies
by: Donna Monday
When you’re in the mood for something with that warm, old-fashioned flavor that reminds you of sweet childhood memories, whip up a batch of these ginger and molasses flavored cookies.

Old-Fashioned Molasses Cookies

½ cup butter, softened
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
¼ cup shortening
¾ cup molasses
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cloves


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine butter, brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining ingredients except sugar. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).

Shape dough into 1 ½-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2-inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until set.
