Ah, ONE of my favorite cookies. I like my gingersnaps on the softer side, and you can't tell from that picture, but these are soft.  Low fat too, but who's worried about that. ;o) These are from Betty, Betty Crocker.


1 c packed Brown Sugar
3/4 c Shortening
1/4 c Molasses
1 Egg
2-1/4 c Flour
2 t Baking Soda
1 t Cinnamon
1 t Ginger, ground
1 t Cloves, ground
1/4 t Salt
Granulated Sugar

Heat oven to 375.

Beat all ingredients together except the Granulated Sugar

Spoon out balls

and roll in the sugar

Place them on a cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes. FYI: Don't put them this close together if you want your cookies round and pretty. :o)

If you want them to look more like this, make sure you add the right amount of flour...which in some cases means you need to add more than the recipe calls for.
