Mini Gingersnap


2 ¼ cup shortening
3 cups sugar
¾ cup molasses (I use full flavor)
3 eggs
6 cups flour
1 ½ tsp salt
2 T soda
2 tsp ginger
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cloves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt shortening in a 3 - 4 quart saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and let cool. Add sugar, molasses, and egg. Beat well. Sift together flour, soda, and spices. Add to first mixture. Mix well; chill. Form into 1/2" balls and place on a greased cookie sheet 1" apart. If you would like a little sparkle to your cookie, roll in sugar OR top each cookie with a bit of raw sugar before baking. Flatten with the bottom of a glass and bake for 8 - 10 minutes (surface should just begin to show cracks). DO not over bake. These are not crispy cookies. They should be soft and chewy.

use with Gingersnap dip
