Prep Time10 minsCook Time11 minsTotal Time21 mins

 1 ½ cups Sugar
 1 cup Shortening
 ½ cup Molasses
 1 Egg
 3 ½ cups Flour
 1 tsp Salt
 2 ½ tsp Baking Soda
 1 tsp Cinnamon
 1 tsp Mace
 ¼ cup Milk

1

Gather all of your ingredients

2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3

Cream together Sugar (1 1/2 cups), Shortening (1 cup), Molasses (1/2 cup), and 1 Egg

4

Sift together Flour (3 1/2 cups), Baking Soda (2 1/2 tsp), Salt (1 tsp), Cinnamon (1 tsp), and Mace (1 tsp)

5

Slowly add sifted dry ingredients into the creamed sugar/shortening mix. Add 1/4 cup of milk.

*I live in a high altitude place, so I added an additional 1/8 cup of milk because it was looking a little dry.

6

Grease a baking sheet. I tried both butter and cooking spray and they worked equally well and cooking spray was easier, so that's what I went with.

7

Use a tablespoon and drop the cookies onto the baking sheet.

8

Use a lightly floured glass (pictured above) to gently smash the cookies

9

Bake for 11 - 14 Minutes on a rack in the middle of the oven.

10

Let the cookies cool before moving them.

Put on a plate and serve
