Gingersnap Cookie Recipe
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2tsp baking soda
1tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg in large bowl with wooden spoon.
Stir in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt slowly, stirring well. It will be hard to stir towards the end and I then use my hand to mix it smooth.
Place in clean bowl,cover and refrigerate at least one hour.
Heat oven to 375F.
Grease cookie sheet lightly.
Shape dough by rounded tablespoon into balls by rolling in palm of your hands.
Dip top into granulated sugar. Place balls, sugar side up, on cookie sheet.
I then press down slightly with a fork.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set.
Let cool on cookie rack.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
ENJOY! They are sooo yummy with a tall cold glass of milk.
