DIRECTIONS

  • Beat butter and shortening until soft. Slowly add and beat in the 2 cups of granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs and molasses.
  • In a second bowl sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and ginger; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Dough will be soft.
  • Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until dough is firm.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into 1-inch balls the roll each in the coarse sugar. Place balls about 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until slightly cracked on top. Watch carefully toward the end of the cooking time so they don't burn on the bottom. Cool slightly and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
