Amish Molasses Cookies

1 c Shortening
1 1/2 c Brown sugar
2 Eggs
1 c Molasses
1 c Light or golden corn syrup
1 1/2 c Milk
3 ts Baking soda
1 ts Ginger
2 ts Cinnamon
6 c Flour

Cream the shortening and sugar. Add the eggs, molasses and syrup. Then sift together the dry ingredients and alternately stir in the flour and milk.  Bake for 5 to 8 minutes in a 375 degree oven. The molasses in the cookies make them very prone to burn so check often.. the recipe could be halved as this makes about 80 cookies.
