Beware: these melt-in-your-mouth molasses cookies are as good as grandma's.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine eggs, sugars, shortening and molasses in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, sift together remaining ingredients except garnish.

Step 2

Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture; cover and chill thoroughly. Roll dough into one-inch balls.

Step 3

Dip tops into sugar and place on lightly greased baking sheets, sugar-side up. Press tops down lightly with a fork to flatten.

Step 4

If desired, sprinkle each cookie with a few drops of water for a more crackled surface. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
