How To Be Nice To Yourself:

The following method takes under an hour if you're prepared for it. This is my "you need a cookie" recipe, stolen with permission from afriend's grandmother.

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup shortening (Crisco) softened
1 cup "sour" milk (add 1 tsp vinegar to sweet milk)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cloves
2 tsp soda
5 1/2 cups flour

Size of eggs and how melted shortening is makes a difference in amount of flour - "Judge accordingly" - dough should not be runny.

Bake 375 deg. 10-12 min.
