I have never loved gingersnap cookies until I tried these. They are soft and have a great flavor! They go perfect with a nice cold glass of milk!
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup butter shortening
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Grandma's Molasses
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp clove
2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour
Cream together the shortening and sugar.
Then add the eggs, one at a time. Followed by the molasses.
Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Roll into golf size balls and roll in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Over baking will make the cookies hard, so watch them carefully.
