            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. Makes 5 dozen
