Molasses Cookies

Melt 3/4 c. shortening (partially cool)
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. molassas
1 egg
2 tsp. baking soda
2 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix sugar and shortening, then egg. Mix combined dry
ingredients. DO NOT OVERMIX. Make 1" balls and coat
in sugar on a baking sheet. (I refrigerate for 15 min. or more
before baking).
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes (I tend to bake them only at
9-10 min. to make them softer. I cook them on stone.
