I made these cookies for an Eagle Scout ceremony that we attended today. They are one of my favorites, so I though I would share the recipe.

3/4 c. shortening
1 c. flour
1 egg
1/4 c. molasses
2 c. flour
2 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cloves
3/4 tsp. ginger

Mix together the shortening, egg, and sugar. Add molasses. Mix in all of the dry ingredients. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in sugar. Place dough balls onto a cookie sheet and beak for 7-9 minutes at 375 degrees.
They taste really good with a cup of tea!
