1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or regular margarine (not soft spreadable)
1 cup sorghum
1 cup strong hot coffee w/2 tsp soda dissolved in it.
Mix above all together then add:
4 1/2 to 5 cups flour
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
CHILL dough, roll to 1/4" thickness then cut using favorite cookie cutter. Keep dough chilled and surface well floured or dough gets very sticky. Bake @ 350 degrees until your desired doneness. (I prefer softer) Frost with powdered sugar icing if desired.
Note: These cookies were introduced to my family as a child by wonderful neighbors to our family farm. They became my dad's & my favorite! My adult daughter loves them too. These were the ONLY rolled cookie my mother ever baked as drop cookies or bars were more her thing to save time! Wonderful memories......
