this is my mom's recipe, which was my grandma's first ... i think.

now it's mine.  ha!

and they are my favorite.  the girls and i made a batch the other day, and they went way too fast. 

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. ginger
2 tsp. b.soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

mix together the sugar and the shortening and then add the molasses and egg.  then the rest.  roll into balls and then roll in sugar.

bake @ 350 for 11 min.  do NOT overbake.  and eat a few hot.  do. it!
