Edna's Christmas Cookies

​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......
