    I have a great one that I am always asked to bring during the holidays. It is a Ginger Molasses cookie. I am not a huge of the regular molasses cookies, but these are wonderful! I'm thinking that maybe there's not as much molasses in it as a true molasses cookie. It has cinnamon, cloves, and ginger that make it wonderfully spicy. It's more like a chewy Ginger Snap.

    Ginger Molasses Cookies

    3/4 Cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp ginger
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 ground cloves
    About 1/4 cup sugar for rolling dough in.

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream shortening and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add egg, molasses and vanilla; mix well. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture and mix thorougly. Roll into one inch balls and then roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet. Bake for about ten or eleven minutes. Watch for them to lightly brown.
