   Recipe by: Deggett/AOL
       Cream shorteining and sugar. Beat in egg, molasses and coffee. Sift
   rest of ingredients together and add. Beat well. If needed, add more flour
   but not too much or cookies will be hard and dry. Two ways to bake 1) drop
   by spoonfuls on buttered cooky sheet and bake about 10 minutes at 375 F. 2)
   spread in two 9x9 cake tins. Bake about 12 minutes. While hot sprinkle
   with brown sugar. Cut in bars.
        NOTES : Once people served Hermits often as we do brownies today.
   Donna’s Mother-In-Law’s recipe. She was born in 1896 so this is a very old
   recipe.
