Gingerbread Cookies


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 3/4 cup oil or lard
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 6-7 cups flour

Combine sugar, molasses, lard, and water (rinse molasses from cup with hot water). Add eggs. Add remaining ingredients. Refrigerate dough overnight. Roll out and cut with cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

To roll out dough, use PAM cooking spray in place of flour.  Cookies freeze well and are softer and more flavorful after freezing.
