I found this recipe in a old church fundraising book. It's been a while since I've made them. Submitting for ZWT3.
- Cream shortening and sugar.
- Add molasses and egg.
- Stir in sifted, flour, salt and baking soda.
- Then cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Dough will be soft and sticky.
- Roll, into walnut-sized balls and roll in granulated sugar.
- Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for 7 to 8 minutes. Cookie will flatten out while baking.
