Directions

  1. Cream together shortening and brown sugar. Stir in egg and molasses and mix well. Fold in dry ingredients and stir. Cover and chill until firm (1 - 2 hours).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Roll dough into small balls (I use a small melon baller to help with this) and roll in white sugar. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 9 - 10 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet one minute until set.
