Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

4  Cups  Flour
1  Tablespoon  Soda
2  Teaspoons  Ground Cloves
1  Teaspoon  Salt
4  Teaspoons  Ground Ginger
2  Teaspoons  Ground Cinnamon
2/3  Cup  Butter Or Margarine
2/3  Cup  Shortening
2  Cups  Sugar
2    Eggs
2  Tablespoons  Molasses
2  Tablespoons  Light Corn Syrup
    Cinnamon And Sugar Mixed
    Together To Coat Cookies

Combine flour, soda, cloves, salt, ginger, & cinnamon. Do not sift. Stir to mix well. Beat together butter, shortening, & sugar til fluffy. Stir in eggs, molasses, & corn syrup until well blended. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Beat until smooth & pliable. Pinch off dough by the rounded teaspoonful. Roll into smooth balls. Roll balls in cinnamon sugar to coat completely. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees 10 minutes or until cookies appear cracked, are firm but feel soft to the touch. NOTE: I usually undercook these cookies for a soft center. But for ginger snaps and a crispy cookie, cook them the full time. Lilli Beach
