Servings: 4
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Sugar
2  cups  Flour, all-purpose
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
1  teaspoon  Baking soda
1  teaspoon  Cinnamon, ground
1  teaspoon  Ginger, ground
1/2  teaspoon  Cloves, ground
3/4  cup  Shortening
1/4  cup  Molasses
1    Egg, slightly beaten
    Sugar, for rolling cookies

Combine 1 cup sugar, flour, salt, baking soda, and spices; stir lightly. Cut in shortening to resemble coarse crumbs. Stir in molasses and egg. Shape dough into 1" balls, and roll them in sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheets; bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately. Cookies will firm quickly as they cool.
