Molasses sugar cookies (You won’t be able to stop eating these)

I love molasses sugar cookies and these ones are better than store-bought. Hans made them a while ago…but I had never found the time to post the recipe. Watch out though, they are irresistable, so either plan to share them with others or eat way too many ;-P

Ingredients (Makes about 30 cookies):
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoons cloves
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 cup raw sugar

Preparation :
1. Mix all the dry ingredients (except sugar) together. Mix the shortening, sugar, molasses, and egg together, separately.

2. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient mixture, mixing it with a fork. Refrigerate in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll each ball in sugar. (Pour some sugar in a bowl and roll each dough ball to cover it with sugar.)

3. Place sugar-covered ball on cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes.
