Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

4 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molasses
3/4 cup coarse sugar


Directions

In medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside. In large mixing bowl beat shortening until softened. Gradually add the 2 cups sugar; beat until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses; beat well. Add half of the flour mixture; beat until combined. Stir remaining flour in with a wooden spoon. Using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, shape dough into 2" balls. Roll in the coarse sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-14 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.
