DIRECTIONS

  • Cream together shortening and brown sugar.
  • Stir in egg and molasses and mix well.
  • Fold in dry ingredients and stir.
  • Cover and chill till firm (1-2 hours).
  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Roll dough into small balls and roll in white sugar.
  • Place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes.
  • Leave on sheet one minute until set.
  • I changed the amount of salt in here. My original recipe calls for 1 tsp of salt but that may be too much for some. A few people have made it as is (the majority) with no complaints on salt, however a few commented it was too much. I think 1/2 tsp can be used with no alterations to the recipe. I will leave it up to you either way you still WIN !
