Ginger Sugar Cookies

Today's recipe is...

Ginger Sugar Cookies

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. shortening
1/4 c. molasses
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 c. sugar

In a mixing bowl, combine half of the flour, the brown sugar, shotening, molasses, egg, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and the cloves. Beat with a mixer on medium until it is well mixed. Turn the mixer on high and slowly put the rest of the flour in the mix. Shape the dough into 1 or 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll them in the sugar and put them on a ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches a part. Bake in a preheated oven (375 degrees) for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the weather and the way your oven cooks. I usually take mine out when the top crackles. Cool the cookies.
