Posted by TinkerBThis is a recipe from a friend of mine - much to my surprise, a favorite of the kiddos!
- 3/4 cup shortening 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup molasses (full flavor) 1 egg 2 tsp baking soda 2 cups flour 1/2 tsp ground cloves 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Melt shortening & allow to cool a bit. Combine shortening, sugar, molasses & egg. Add dry ingredients. Mix (you may need to finish mixing by hand with spoon rather than mixer). Roll into little balls. Bake @ 375 fro 8 - 10 min
- * Yummy if sprinkled with sugar right out of the oven.
