3 cups flour
2 tsp Baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp ground ginger
1 ½ c shortening or bacon drippings (less if shortening)
½ cup molasses
Sift together the dry ingredients.
Cream shortening/bacon drippings, add the eggs, then molasses.
Add dry ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drop onto cookie sheets, mark with a fork, cook for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven, let sit for 2 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.
This also a good recipe to double, and put the extra in the freezer,
and slice off what is needed.
No need to mark with a fork, if you are cooking them out of the freezer.
Great if friends/family drop by for a visit!!!
