Soft Ginger Cookies- Grandma French

6 to 8 Cups of Flour

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Crisco

1 Egg beaten

2 Cups Molasses

2 TB Vinegar

4 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Salt

1 and 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

2 TB Ginger

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1 Cup Boiling Water

Cream Crisco and sugar.
Mix four, spices and salt in a separate bowl.
Add egg to Crisco mixture and beat well. Add Molasses and vinegar and mix well before adding the dry ingredients.

Lastly add baking soda dissolved in boiling water. Add more flour if necessary. Chill and roll into balls, and pat into cakes.

Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees on greased cookie sheets.

NOTE: I know this seems to be a strange way to make a cookie. I guess the water is still boiling hot when you add it to the dough mixture. When Mom was growing up this was her favorite cookie.
