Spiced Sorghum Cookies

A traditional molasses cookie recipe turned local using sorghum, eggs, and buckwheat flour. YUM!

Cream together:

1 1/2 cups shortening (butter)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs

Combine & Stir in:

4 cups flour
4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Blend well. Chill (we skipped this step and they came out just fine). Form into balls and roll in sugar. Bake @ 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. For chewy cookies, make sure not to over bake. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Store in a cookie tin or other airtight container. Enjoy!
