Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine flour, dry pudding mix, baking soda and spices. Beat shortening and brown sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and molasses; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Place granulated sugar in small bowl. Roll dough into 40 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. dough for each ball. Roll balls in granulated sugar until evenly coated.
  • Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 8 to 10 min. or until tops are cracked. Cool on baking sheet 2 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.


For easy cleanup, use parchment paper (also known as silicon paper or baking paper) to cover the baking sheets instead of spraying them with cooking spray. The baked cookies will slide right off the baking sheets onto the cooling racks.
