Some people call these molasses cookies. They are small in size as not to overdo it.

Recipe Ingredients for Sugar and Spice Cookies

3/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 tsp. ground ginger

Recipe Directions for Sugar and Spice Cookies

  1. Mix together the following ingredients:

  2. 3/4 cup shortening (I use Crisco butter flavor sticks)

  3. 1 egg

  4. 1/4 cup molasses

  5. Sift dry ingredients together and mix well into above mixture:

  6. 2 cups flour

  7. 2 tsp. baking soda

  8. 1/4 tsp. salt

  9. 1 tsp. cinnamon

  10. 3/4 tsp. ground cloves

  11. 3/4 tsp. ground ginger

  12. Once you have sifted the dry ingredients together, add them to the shortening, egg & molasses mixture a little at a time to ensure everything gets mixed together. Chill for at least 1 - 2 hours. Form into little balls about the size of a small walnut. Dip top in granulated sugar and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 - 12 minutes. If you take them out while the middle looks undone, they will be soft in the middle with a nice edge on them. If you bake them too long, they will get hard. You may wish to experiment with the length of time they need to bake in your oven. I bake mine for about 9 - 10 mintues.
