Mrs. Callihan's Molasses Cookies

Prep. Time: 10 min.
Bake Time: 10 min. each batch

Cream together: 
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. shortening

Mix in:
1/4 c. molasses
1 egg

Pile on top and mix in:
2 1/4 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ginger
1/2 t. cloves
1/4 t. salt

Roll balls in sugar and bake 8-10 minutes (err on the side of too doughy rather than overdone; when they're looking cracked on top, they're done) at 375. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen if you don't eat dough along the way.
