Grandma's Chewy Molasses Cookies
90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)

These chewy cookies are what you remember from your childhood....soft inside, a fragrant spicy aroma, and a crinkle-top that is crusted with sugar. The only change I made from my Grandma's recipe was to get rid of the artery-clogging shortening. These cookies hold up well for shipping - I mail them to my kids who are in college.
