Pennsylvania dutch molasses cookies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Molasses
1 teaspoon Soda; dissolved in:
1 tablespoon Hot water
½ cup Lard; melted
1 Egg
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (up to 2)
⅛ teaspoon Ginger

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
