  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees F).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 2 cups sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and ginger; stir into the sugar mixture until well blended. Mix in cinnamon chips. Dough will be stiff. Roll into walnut sized balls and roll each ball in remaining sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until tops are crackled. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are soooo yummy, especially when right out of the oven! The cinnamon chips really add a lot of flavor. This is definitely a "do again" recipe!

A refreshing change from the traditional "gingersnap" cookie. Wow! Still have that yummy spiciness, but with the cinnamon chips... Brilliant! Used my trademark Butter Flavor Crisco. And, tos...

These had a nice flavor. Don't be afraid to put the 2 T of vanilla in, like I was; it's balanced by the spices. However, this was not the molasses spice cookie I thought it would be, but a li...

These must be the best cookies in existence. INCREDIBLE!!!

Pretty good cookies. I like the cinnamon chips, but they are sweet, so I'd scale back on the sugar next time by about 1/2 a cup. With all of the sugar in the dough and rolling in sugar, it wa...
