A long time ago, before I retired here to Saint Lucia.  I had the most wonderful cookie ever! I believe the name of the Cookie was a "Tennesse Truffle" or "Tennesse Molasses cookie.  Well, I will try to discribe the delicious cookie. It's golden brown, with a light crisp outter that appears slightly cracked.  It soft and chewy inside. It has a very slight maple/molasses taste. However, it's flavor stays with you until you have eatten the very last cookie.

Well as you can see it's a very tasty cookie and I have been seeking this receipe for the longest.  I know one of you wonder bakers out there know this cookie and will happily share it with me.  Thanking you in advance.

I went on the website and it sounds very good. I used to make molasses cookies when
my kids were little but haven't made them for some time now.

    Here’s my family’s OLD recipe for Molasses Cookies. It makes a HUGE batch, to feed all the farm hands and some left over for the family!

     

    4-5 c. flour (closer to 5 c.)

    1 ½ tsp. salt

    6 tsp. baking soda

    1 tsp. cloves

    1 tsp. ginger

    1 tsp. cinnamon

    2 c. shortening (half lard, half Crisco)

    3 eggs

    2 ¼ c. sugar

    ¾ c. molasses

     

    Preheat oven to 375º F. Cream sugar, shortening, and eggs. Add the remaining ingredients by hand. Form dough into balls the size of a walnut. Roll in sugar. Bake on parchment-covered cookie sheet at 350º - 375º F., 10-15 minutes. They may look like they are too soft but remove from oven anyway, as they will get too crisp.

     

    Yield: 8-9 dozen
