  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger

  2. Cream sugar and shortening; add eggs and molasses.
  3. Mix flour, salt, soda and spices and combine into to creamed mixture until texture is consistent.

I can understand why these are Grandpas Favorite Molasses Cookies because they are absolutely DELICIOUS! They smelt so wonderful while they were baking today that we were all standing at the oven door just waiting for the timer to buzz, lol. Easy to make too so, for me, this recipe is definitely a keeper.
