Directions

  • 1 Beat 1 cup sugar and the butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients except sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours until dough is firm.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375º. Generously grease cookie sheet with shortening. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on generously floured cloth-covered surface. Cut into 3-inch circles. Sprinkle with sugar. Place about 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Molasses cookies are an old-fashioned favorite. These oversize cookies are cakelike and tender, with the added bonus of being low in fat. Make a glaze by stirring 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons fat-free (skim) milk, 2 drops of vanilla and, if desired, 2 drops butter flavor in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.
