Remember when..........

Remember when recipes were called receipts. Our friend Lois Ann sent me a receipt when I was looking for a good molasses cookie recipe.
Yesterday I made a batch. SweetOldBob helped stir the dry ingredients into the wet ones.

Here's the recipe.

Old Grange Receipt
Molasses Cookies

Cream together (mixer works great for this step)
1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup molasses, light or dark
3 eggs
1 large teaspoon vanilla
Mix these ingredients well and add to wet mixture
4 cups flour
3 teaspoons soda (not baking powder)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon giner
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Stir until the flour can't be seen. Drop on lightly greased (I use a cooking spray) cookie sheets.
Flatten with fork. Baker at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Watch like a hawk so they don't burn and turn into hockey pucks. The receipt made about 4 1/2 dozen.

These were so good. We took a dozen to my son in law at All Points Auto Works. He said they were good. Bob loved them.

Thanks Lois Ann.
