Directions

Cream shortening and brown sugar together in an electric mixer. Mix in eggs and molasses until combined. Stir dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, then slowly add to mixer on low speed until combined and a thick dough forms. Wrap dough in plastic and chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
