The Lumberjacks Ginger Cookie

by Lindsay M.
(Annapolis Valley)

These are a great ginger cookie that my family all go wild over.

1 cup white sugar

1 tsp salt

1 cup shortening

1 tsp baking soda

1 egg, unbeaten

1 tsp ginger

½ cup milk

4 cups flour

1 cup molasses

Cream together the sugar and shortening.

Add the egg, molasses and milk. Sift together the flour, salt, soda and ginger and add to the mixture.

Cool in refrigerator from 1 to 2 hours or mix and let stand overnight, cover with glad wrap, foil or a plate to keep top from drying out.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface to ¼ inch thick, take a plastic wine bottle top or an empty 1 inch medicine bottle and make design on top if desired.

Bake at 350 F oven for 25 minutes.
