1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 1/2 cup of the sugar.
Add the egg, molasses, and honey, and beat until light.
Add the boiling water, flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl, and mix well.
In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and remaining 1/4 cup of the sugar.
Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls into the cinnamon sugar mixture, and roll to coat well.
Bake on greased baking sheets for 8 minutes, or until the cookies are a light brown on the bottom.
These drop cookies have a flavor reminiscent of gingerbread, and a wonderfully soft texture.
