Ingredients

4 1/2 c
all-purpose 1lour
4 tsp
ground ginger
2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground cloves
1/4 tsp

1 1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium mixing bowl,stir together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
2
In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening until softened. Gradually add the 2 cups granulated sugar; beat until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses; beat well. Add half of the flour mixture, beat until combined. Stir in remaining flour with a wooden spoon.
3
Using a 1/4-cup ice cream scoop, shape dough into 2-inch balls. Roll in the coarse or granulated sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet* about 2 1/2 inches apart.
4
Bake in a 350° oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until cookies are light brown and puffed. (Do not overbake or cookies will not be chewy.) Let stand for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool.
