Molasses Crinkles are always a favorite and well received by all.  If you like molasess cookies you will for sure like these.  A childhood favorite, Mother made these cookies many, many times. Still a favorite today.  That 's her hand writing on the recipe card.  Every homemaker had a box of index cards or recipe cards to hand out to copy a recipe.     

Cream together:
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molasses

Sift together:
4 1/2 cups flour
4 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
Mix all together, and shape into balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheet do not flatten. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
