Ginger Snap Cookies

Ginger Snap Cookies
You will need the following ingredients to make these cookies:

1 cup packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup shortening
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup water

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the sugars, molasses, shortening, butter, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. In another large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and beat while adding the water. Continue to mix until the ingredients are mixed together.

Measure a heaping teaspoon of dough at time. Roll the dough into a sphere between the palms of your hands then press the dough onto the cookie sheet. Flatten to about 1/8-inch thick. You can also roll this dough out and cut out shapes.

Bake cookies for 10-14 minutes or until edges begin to brown and cookies are crispy when cool.

Makes 120 (10 dozen) cookies.
