Grandma Effie's Molasses Kringles by


3/4 Cup of Shortening (I subbed Unsalted Butter)
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 Cup of Molasses
21/4 Cups of Flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp of Ginger
1/2 tsp of Cloves
Sugar for Dipping
1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1 tsp of Vanilla
1 Tbsp of Milk


First up, cream together your shortening/butter and brown sugar. Next, add in the molasses, egg, flour, baking soda, salt, and spice. Mix it up good.

Take a small bowl and add in about a 1/4 cup of white sugar to it. Grab your dough by heaping teaspoons and roll it into a ball. Roll your ball in the white sugar, set it on your cookie sheet and smoosh it down with a fork. Repeat for the rest of the dough.

Pop your cookies in the oven at 350 for 9 to 11 minutes. While your cookies are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Spoon the glaze over each cookie and allow it to harden.
