Leah's Molasses Cookies


3/4 c shortening
1 c sugar
1/4 c molasses
1 egg

2 tsp baking soda
2c flour
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger 
1/2 tsp salt

Sift dry ingredients from soda to salt in a big bowl. Melt shortening in the stove on low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool a bit, then add sugar/molasses/egg (I add the sugar first to cool down so the egg doesn’t scramble). Add wet ingredients to dry and mix in the big bowl. Chill for at least 30min, then roll into 1” balls and roll in sugar. Place 2” apart on a well greased** cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-10min.
