The holidays are over but these are our favorite Holiday cookies!
¾ cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
¼ cup light or dark molasses
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp salt
Pre-heat oven to 375F.
*Cream together shortening and sugar. Add molasses and egg, and beat well.
*Add dry ingredients until well mixed in, cover the dough with cling wrap and chill until stiff. (EARLIER: Roll into logs and refrigerate so you can just cut even lengths and roll into balls.)
*Form into one-inch balls, and roll each in granulated sugar.
*Bake on a greased cookie sheet about two inches apart for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden.
OPT: Add 2T finely chopped crystallized ginger to dough
