#2700 - Molasses Cutout Cookies

(by Aunt Ruth Herman)

1/2 cup Crisco shortening
1 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1 cup Brer rabbit green label baking molasses
1/2 cup boiling water
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour (or enough to make batter stiff enough to roll)

In a mixer add Crisco and brown sugar--beat. Add baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla--beat. Add molasses--beat. Add boiling water--beat. Slowly add flour--beat (continue with a wooden spoon when it gets too thick for the mixer). Flour your counter, place some of the batter on the flour and flour the top of the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to about 1/4" thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out the cookies. Place the cookies on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
