INGREDIENTS (

  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together brown sugar and shortening until smooth. Mix in 1 egg, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon, and molasses. Mix in flour until the dough is stiff enough to roll out.
  3. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into cookies using a pig shaped cookie cutter. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Brush the remaining beaten egg over the tops of the cookies.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the centers of the cookies appear dry and edges are lightly browned.
