    Ginger Snaps

    3/4 cups shortening
    1 cup sugar
    4 tblspn molasses (real molasses, not Karo)
    1 egg
    2 cups flour
    2 tspn baking soda
    1 tspn cinnamon
    1 tspn ground cloves
    1 tspn ground ginger

    Thoroughly cream shortening and sugar. Add molasses and egg. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl and add.

    Roll into small balls and roll in granulated sugar until coated and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake @ 350 10-12 minutes.


    These are what I grew up on, my mom always baked. These are my fav so I don't make them very often, cause I'd eat them all! lol I prefer them crisper rather than softer, dipped in milk they are great.

    I love these.

    Ginger Cookies

    The first thing I will tell you is to get NEW ground ginger to insure its freshness.





    1 ½ cup butter
    1# dark brown sugar

    2 eggs
    ½ cup dark molasses

    4 ½ cups flour
    4 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon all spice
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 Tablespoon ground ginger

    Sift dry ingredients
    Cream the butter and brown sugar
    Add the eggs and molasses
    Add the dry ingredients
    Chill
    Form into ball and roll in white sugar.
    Bake 375 for about 12 mins.


    These freeze GREAT!

    That is somewhat what I used, but no brown sugar and I used orange juice instead of water, they turned out pretty good.
