Blackstrap Molasses Cookies

I like simple recipes with just a few ingredients. Here is one that I was able to whip up quick that I found on pintrest from this blog  These are my MIL new favs :)

Molasses Cookies
(Adapted from Denise Tourtellott's recipe in my grandma's church cookbook)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons dark molasses
2 cups flour
Mix ingredients in order in one bowl. Mix well, but do not spend too much time creaming your first ingredients. Scoop or roll dough into walnut sized balls. Toss each in sugar before arranging on a baking sheet. Bake about 12 minutes at 350F, until the center of the cookie is almost set. The middle will look uncooked. Rest the cookies on the baking sheet for a couple minutes before removing and cooling off the pan. I cool mine directly on the kitchen table before eating. Eat them too soon, and they will be light and doughy. Cool them completely and they will be dense and chewy with intensified flavor.
