1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar

Cream these together.

4 eggs

Beat eggs in, 1 at a time. Add:

1/2 cup Karo corn syrup
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons anise extract

Sift together, and gradually add to the mixture:
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
5 teaspoons baking powder

grandma used to roll out the dough, and cut out the cookies
with a thimble. I do not have the patience for that, so I make
the dough into long snakes, and cut off small pieces with a knife.
My mother has been know to roll the dough flat, and cut it into
small squares with a knife.

The way that you cut the cookies will affect baking time, so...
when I make snakes, I cut the dough to about the size of a pistachio
nut. Then I bake them at 350 for 5 minutes, on a greased cookie
sheet. If you use another method - well, the cookies should be
still a little bit soft (Not too soft - you want peppernuts, not
peppersofts.) They will harden a very little on cooling. The
bottoms of the cookies will be lightly browned.
