Gingersnap Recipe

Here is my favorite recipe for Ginger Snaps

1 C shortening
2/3 C molasses
1/3 C brown sugar
2 t. soda
2 t ginger
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t cloves
1 t salt
3 C flour

Add the flour slowly at the end after mixing the first ingredients. Dough should stick together and not be crumbly. You may only need 2 1/2 cups so be careful. Bake at 350 for about 9-10 minutes.

My mother made these cookies all the time and they are yummy if you like that crisp taste. I remember eating these by the handful with a tall glass of cold milk. Good memories
