During the winter I LOVE making gingersnaps.  They are easy and so tasty.  This recipe has become my “go-to” recipe for cookies.  Everyone loves a chewy gingersnap…and if not that leaves more for yourself.

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 1/2 T molasses
2 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp gnger
1 tsp cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs and molasses and mix well.  Combine flour and other dry ingredients and add, mixeing well.  Make small balls of dough, about 1″ in diameter.  Roll in sugar.  Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.   Makes about 4 dozen.

**Note:  I like to undercook mine just a bit so they are more chewy.  So I usually bake them for about 8 1/2 minutes.
