Molasses Sugar Cookies

A very tasty and chewy spice cookie. This is a family favorite. These keep very well in an airtight container.


1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup molasses
2 eggs
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt


Melt the shortening in a large pan on the stove, and cool.
Add sugar, eggs, and molasses. Beat well. In a separate bowl, sift dry ingredients together and add to molasses mixture. Mix well and chill 3 hours or overnight. Form chilled dough into balls. Roll in sugar. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
