From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A favorite recipe from Grandma Antons (Edna) and she always packed them in Pringle potato chip cans for us to carry back to California from Iowa in the 1970's. Paul and Alison loved them.
3/4 cup shortening (1/2 of it butter, the other half lard)
Cream shortening with the sugar. Add egg and sorghum and mix well. Whisk together the dry ingredients and mix into the butter mixture. Chill dough overnight, or at least 2 hours. Make into balls and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet, do not fllatten them. Allow space for them to flatten out on their own. Bake at 365 degrees for about 10-12 minutes...watch until you get the timing down. (Grandma did not leave us with the timing, so we just cook them until done to our liking!) Do not grease cookie sheet.
