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


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.
