GINGER COOKIES

Barry from Rock Recipes has shared a recipe from Auntie Crae's bakery.  I loved these cookies, Big, just how I like my cookies.  Go check out the post.   I have made a few recipes from Barry and had good luck.   These cookies are soft and yummy!

Auntie Crae's Ginger Cookie

1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
extra white sugar for rolling the dough balls in 

Mix the shortening along with the sugar.   Add the egg and the molasses and mix.  In another bowl add the dry ingredients and whisk together to blend all the dry ingredients.  Using your cookie scoop scoop the dough in balls and roll in the white sugar.  Then gently press each of the dough balls and bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.  They will spread while baking so allow room for the cookies to spread.  Barry suggest during the last few minutes of baking to rotate your cookie sheet.   The cookies are soft but will firm up as they cool on the cooling rack.   Enjoy
