Spice Cookies

My brother can bake like nobody’s business…so here’s one of his holiday favorites! These cookies feel a bit nostalgic, like a cross between a gingersnap and a hermit. Spicy and warm all in one bite! I’m telling you – soooo good – I give you permission NOT to share them!!

¾ cup shortening 

1 cup sugar 

1 egg, unbeaten 

¼ cup molasses 

2 cups flour 

2 tsp baking soda 

¼ tsp salt 

1 tsp cinnamon 

¾ tsp ground cloves 

¾ tsp ground ginger 

large sugar crystals 

Mix together shortening, sugar, egg, and molasses. Stir together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. 

Mix dry ingredients into wet. Chill for 10 minutes. 

Form into walnut sized balls; roll in large sugar crystals. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Leave on the pan to cool for 10 minutes before placing on rack. 

Makes about 40 cookies.
