Ginger Cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl stir together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the 2 cups sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and molasses until combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour mixture.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the 3/4 cup sugar. Place 1-1/2 inches apart on a parchment-lined or ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned and tops are puffed (do not overbake). Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
  3. Makes about 120 cookies.

Sanding sugar - larger crystals to roll dough in; very different from the sugar in the mix.
