“From "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook": "'No, indeed! The rosebud tea set! Well, what next? You know I never use that except for the minister or the Aids. You'll put down the old brown tea set. But you can open the little yellow crock of cherry preserves. It's time it was being used anyhow--I believe it's beginning to work. And you can cut some fruit cake and have some of the cookies and snaps.'" (From "Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery). Times are estimates; cooking time includes chilling time, but cooling time for both molasses mixture and cookies (beyond the first 5 minutes) is not included.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine molasses and shortening in a small pan; heat, stirring constantly, just to boiling over medium heat. Remove immediately from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, measure remaining ingredients into a large bowl. When molasses mixture has cooled, pour over flour mixture and mix well to combine. Chill dough for 10 minutes.
  4. Shape into small (about quarter-sized) balls and arrange 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of a drinking glass or with fingers.
  5. Bake until dry and crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Watch carefully as they may easily burn.
  6. When done, place pan on cooling rack and cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack and cool completely.
  7. Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container.
