My mom's molasses cookies. They're not made quite in the quantity of Bunz's cookies but when served hot they are completely irresistible.


3/4 cup Shortening (1/2 Butter , 1/2 Crisco)
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 tsp baking soda
2 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

Cream the sugar and shortening.
Combine dry ingredients.
Add egg and molasses to sugar shortening mixture.
Combine wet and dry ingredients.
Form into balls.
Roll in sugar.
Bake at 375 approximately 10 minutes.
