Molasses Cookies

This recipe is from the Carolyn Reed's cookbook. They are so soft and yummy and before you know it you've eaten a dozen in one sitting! These are perfect for the Fall and Winter months and not too hard to make.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
4 Tbls molasses (if you double the recipe use 1/2 cup
1 egg
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda

Combine ingredients. Pinch off small walnut-size pieces of dough and roll in sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 4-6 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE if you want them soft and chewy. I think this makes about 2 or three dozen.
