Viki Ferrell | Gramma Ferrell's Molasses Cookies

Recipe Provided by Viki Ferrell

Here's my family's all time Christmas favorite: Gramma Ferrell's Molasses Cookies. I've been making them since she gave me this recipe shortly after my husband and I married 40 years ago. My girls have loved them since they were little. It just isn't Christmas if I don't make them! It was only recently that I found out that one of her daughters-in-law actually gave her the recipe well over 60 years ago, and their family call them Aunt Elva's Molasses Cookies. Wherever it came from, they are delicious!

Gramma Ferrell's Molasses Cookies


- 1/4 C Shortening
- 1 C Sugar
- 1/4 C Molasses
- 1 Egg
- 2 tsp Baking Soda
- 2 C All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
- 1/2 tsp Ginger
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Salt


Melt shortening in a 3 or 4 quart pot over low heat. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Then add sugar, molasses, and egg. Beat well. Sift flour, soda, cloves, ginger, salt and cinnamon together. Add these to the first mixture. Mix well and chill overnight in a covered bowl. Form 1" balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet about 2" apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 - 10 min. This recipe makes about 4 doz. cookies.
