Method:

Bake

Ingredients

3/4 c
butter flavored crisco or can use vegetable oil
1 c
packed, brown sugar
1
egg
1/4 c
unsulphered molasses
2 - 21/4 c
flour
1/2 tsp
each- salt, ground cloves & ground ginger
1 tsp
cinnamon
2 tsp
baking soda
white
sugar for rolling

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Lightly spray baking sheet and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, cream shortening or oil with the sugar.
2
Add the egg and molasses and mix well ( I just use a wooden spoon for this. )
3
Next, add 1 cup of flour along with the spices and baking soda. Mix well. Now, add remaining flour, just enough to be able to roll a ball. I used approx 2 cups altogether. You want the ball to keep shape to roll into sugar.
4
Make balls about the size of a golf ball. Roll to coat in sugar and place on baking sheet..a few inches apart.
5
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or when puffed and cracking. They will look a bit undercooked, but will finish baking on sheet, when removed from oven.

Let set on sheet for about 3 - 4 minutes, before moving to cooling rack. I sometimes sprinkle extra sugar on while still warm.

Enjoy!
