Grammy Littlefield’s Molasses Cookies

Here's a family favorite and holiday tradition to make that isn't too sweet.

Mix thoroughly…
1/3 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
1 ½ c. dark molasses

Stir in…
2/3 c. cold water

Sift together, then add to above…
6 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

Chill dough for 1 hr (cold all the way through). Roll out ½ inch thick, cut out, place on parchment, and bake 350° for 15 min.
