Rolled Molasses Sugar Cookies The trick to getting ‘chewy’ cookies is to bake them the minimum time necessary and then cool them directly on a surface (i.e. – counter, table, etc). Don’t cool them on a rack! You can also store them with a slice of apple.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).Advertisement
In a medium bowl, blend the shortening, sugar, molasses and egg. Add the baking soda, flour, clove, ginger, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
Form into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar.
Place on cookie sheets 2 inches apart and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on a flat surface.
