Directions

  1. Cream together shortening and sugar. Mix in molasses and egg. Stir in sifted flour, salt, soda, cinnamon, clove, and ginger. Dough will be soft and a little sticky.
  2. Mold into walnut-sized balls, and roll in sugar. Place on greased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 7 to 8 minutes. Baking them longer will make them less soft, but still chewy.

As a matter of personal preference I used brown sugar rather than white sugar and the results were perfect-a soft yet chewy cookie with tons of flavor. For a more festive look for my Christmas cookie trays I gave them a drizzle of white chocolate which was the perfect complement both in taste and presentation.

I substituted one 3.9 ounce carton of applesauce for half of the butter, used 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar instead of just white, and added 1 teaspoon of freshly-minced ginger. Overall, though, very fluffy and very delicious.

Love these cookies. They smell and taste soooo good. I substituted becel margarine for the shortening and they turned out perfectly. Love how the sugar makes them sparkle!
