|1 teaspoon||Soda; dissolved in:|
|1 tablespoon||Hot water|
|½ cup||Lard; melted|
|2||1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (up to 2)|
Place molasses in a large bowl, add soda which has been dissolved in water and melted lard. Mix well. Add slightly beaten eggs, sifted flour and ginger. Beat well. If dough seems to sticky & soft can add more flour enough to make a stiffer batter. Chill well. Roll out on a floured board, very thin, and cut into animal shapes (or use a round cutter). Bake 350 F.
10-15 minutes. 5 dozen very soft cookies. I make them big and cut them a little thicker. Posted to Bakery-Shoppe Digest V1 #176 by "William & Evelyn Hall" <wchall@...> on Aug 1, 1997
