Spice Cookies - Spice up your life

“Spice Cookiesto spice up your life

Is this a German Russian recipe? I don’t know. My German Russian mother made them, so let us say “Yes”, they are.  Whenever I share these cookies, I get asked for the recipe.  So, I am responding to a request from my quilting group.  On Saturday, June 18, I attended the class by Nancy Brown on applique, which by the way was informative and fun.  During lunch, I received requests for the recipe for my spice cookies. 

Spice Cookies 

¾ cup shortening or butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
¼ cup molasses
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger

Shape into balls and then roll in sugar
Bake 375 for l0-12 minutes

I must admit these are one of my favorite cookies.
