Chewy Molasses Cookies
23 mins (prep 15, cooking 8)
10 ingredients
48 servings
This recipe has been handed down in our family since World War II and it remains a favorite with the grandkids today. Do not substitute anything for the melted shortening; your results will not be as good. If you prefer a crispier molasses cookie, bake one minute longer. These cookies freeze well (if you can keep your family from eating them up first!)
