  1. Flour Cream shortening and sugar. Add molases, well beaten eggs, and sour cream into which soda has been stired. (I would think this is cream that has been soured rather than commercial sour cream) Add spices and enough flour to make a soft dough. Chill, roll to 1/2 inch in thickness, and cut with a cooky cutter. Bake on a greased baking sheet in a moderate oven. Time in baking, 10 minutes. Temperature, 350 degrees.
