Ginger Molasses Cookies


I ½ c. softened butter
1 c. shortening
3 c. granulated sugar
¾ molasses
3 eggs
6 t. soda
6 c. flour
1 ½ t. ground cloves
1 ½ t. ground ginger
3 t. ground cinnamon
1 ½ t. salt

Beat together until fluffy: butter, shortening, sugar and molasses. Beat in eggs. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add a little at a time. Chill dough. Roll into balls, then roll in granulated sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8 – 12 minutes or until they reach desired doneness.
This recipe makes several dozen cookies, but dough can be frozen and used later. Cookies freeze well, too.
