Grandma's Soft Gingersnap Cookies

The winds of change have arrived in the neighborhood. 
Fall colors are at peak, the breeze has a bit of a bite to it... 
perfect time to warm the house with
the aroma of Gingersnaps baking in the oven.
1 C. flour
1 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. shortening
1/4 C. molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Mix all the above ingredients, beat until creamy.
1 and 1/4 C. flour
Mix additional flour into batter to finish cookie dough. 
Roll into balls, roll balls in sugar and place
on ungreased baking pan.
Bake @375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Love the crackles and this cookie stays soft!

Yum!  Now if I could just eat one...*sigh
