Week 25 - Sugar and Spice Cookies

In an earlier post I mentioned I bought out an elderly farm wife's cookbook collection.  I had to dig into a few to find a cookie recipe for this week.  

Sugar and Spice Cookies



1 1/2 C shortening
2 C sugar

cream together, add

2 eggs
1/2 C molasses
4 t. baking soda 
1 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon 
1 1/2 cloves
1 1/2 ginger

mix together 

2 C oatmeal
4 C flour




roll into small balls, dip in sugar and flatten with a fork





Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes



These are so good.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
