Molasses Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Melt shortening and then cool? This is why some of you had a problem with it. ALWAYS have ALL ingredients at room temperature, including eggs and liquids!! Cream shortening or butter with sugars until smooth and creamy. Then add eggs and mix well again, then other liquids and mix well. Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add 1/3 or less at a time to the wet ingredients and that's how great cookies are made, as well as all muffins and quick breads too! The old cookbooks used to explain this, but, alas, that info isn't included anymore and new bakers don't have this info. My daughter just made this same mistake because the recipe she used didn't give step by step info like they used to! No matter what the recipe says, this is always (in my experience) the way to perfect baking! I hope this helps!! Great recipe otherwise!!!
