I got this recipe from a realtor who sent it to us telling us to welcome our new neighbors with some freshly baked cookies. I not only made these cookies for them but over the years we shared many dinners together before they moved.

These are delicious Ginger Cookies

2 cups flour
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp soda
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup shortening
4 tbsp molasses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first 5 ingredients into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well. Roll into walnut-shaped balls and dip in sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes. If I want to get a little more creative I dip half of the cookie in melted chocolate after they have cooled.
