White House Gingerbread Cookies

1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
8 Tablespoons shortening
3 cup flour
1 taspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 F/190 C.

Melt molasses, shortening and ginger together and blend.

Beat 10 minutes by hand, or 3 to 4 minutes with electric beater.

Dissolve baking soda in tablespoon of boiling water and add to molasses mixture, mix thoroughly and add flour, folding in just enough to make a good stiff batter which can be rolled.

Use enough flour on board to keep dough from sticking and roll to about 1/4" thickness.

Bake in preheated moderate oven (375F, 190C) for 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes approximately 5 dozen cookies.
