Gramsy's Molasses Cookies

1 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup hot coffee
1 cup molasses
5 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking soda
1 Tbsp ginger
¼ tsp salt

Blend crisco and sugar. Add hot coffee and molasses. Stir in 3 cups of flour, the soda, ginger and salt. Stir in 2 more cups of flour until shine goes away. Chill. Roll out on sugar surface. Bake at 350°. Not sure of time.
This is from my Mom's first cookbook. Gramsy went through and made notes for Mom to follow.
