These cookies are one of our family's must-haves at Christmastime,
or when we need a little taste of "home."
With their delicious cinnamon smell,
slight molasses flavor,
and very soft texture,
they just have a way of warming the heart! : -)
We often get asked for the recipe for these cookies,
so I think they are a big favorite among friends and family!
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream shortening, brown sugar, egg and molasses in mixer.
Mix dry ingredients together, and then add to creamed mixture.
