How to Make It

Step 1

Combine molasses and honey in a medium saucepan; cook over low heat until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Add shortening; stir until well blended. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool.

Step 2

Combine flour, soda, salt, allspice, mace, pepper, and anise in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Set aside.

Step 3

Add egg to cooled molasses mixture, stirring until well blended. Gradually pour into reserved flour mixture, stirring just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Allow dough to rest 15 minutes.

Step 4

Shape into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and roll in powdered sugar. Cool on wire racks.
