This month's recipe swap was to use ginger. Since I have to work during that time of deliciousness, I baked these up ahead of time.
1 cup of white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground clove
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven 350F.
Cream together sugar, egg, salt and shortening.
Add flour, baking powder and spices. Mix together.
Roll mixture into balls and then roll in white sugar.
Place on cookie sheet and bake for 9 1/2mins. (Originally recipe calls for 5-6 but they came out too soft)
Remove and then press with fork before placing on cooling rack.
Makes between 2-3 dozen.
