Edye's Molasses Krinkles

It seems like everyone who bakes has that one recipe they make better than everyone else, their signature dish. I had heard about these molasses krinkles from Eric, his sister, and his dad long before I had ever tasted one. A while back Edye made a batch and they certainly lived up to their hype. She said I could share the recipe with you so here it is:

1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
4 tablespoons molassess
1 egg
2 1/4 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
granulated sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cream the shortening, sugar, and molasses. Add the egg and then sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Combine well.  Roll the dough into small balls, dip into granulated sugar and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
