1  Cup  Sugar
1/2  Cup  Shortening
1  Cup  Dark Molasses
1/2  Cup  Water
4  Cups  All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2  Teaspoons  Salt
1  Teaspoon  Baking Soda
1 1/2  Teaspoons  Ground Ginger
1/2  Teaspoon  Ground Cloves

Mix 1 cup sugar and the shortening. Stir in remaining ingredients except sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on generously floured cloth-covered board. Cut into 3-inch circles; sprinkle with sugar. Place about 1 1/2 inches apart on well-greased cookie sheet. Bake until almost no indentation remains when touched, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 3 dozen cookies; 115 calories per cookie.
