Family Recipe Friday: Aunt Vera's Molasses Cookies
Aunt Vera (Haley) Stuber made these delicious cookies. They were a favorite with Weldon LeMaster. He remembers them being as large as saucers. Note the quantities of ingredients and assume the recipe made a lot depending on size. I had no directions for the recipe as to how long to bake and what temperature, so I referred to a modern cookbook.
Mix lard and brown sugar. Add molasses and eggs; mix well. Add soda cinnamon and flour. Chill and roll into small balls and bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes. Cookies freeze well. This recipe can be cut in half.
