Another one of mom’s cookie recipes… and a good one, too!
1 1/2 c. shortening
2 c brown sugar
1/2 c molasses
2t baking soda
4 c flour
(and extra sugar to roll the cookies in)
Mix in order. Make 1″ balls and roll in sugar. Flatten slightly on baking sheet.
Bake at 350º for 10 minutes.
Makes about 5 dozen
Here is the mix I use…
||½ cup + 1T
Mix everything except the flour and let the yeast mixture become foamy for about 5 or 10 minutes. Then, add the flour until it is no longer sticky; knead for 5- 10 minutes; you may need a bit more or a bit less flour. Let it rise until doubled (about an hour, depending on how warm your kitchen is), punch it down and it is ready to use. I won’t explain how to use it. If you would like more information please let me know.
By the way, 1 package of yeast = 2 rounded teaspoons (a bit fuller than full).
Let me know how it works.
