Bakepaloozah 2009 Part Two: Gingersnaps

Gingersnaps are my favorite non chocolate cookie to make. It makes the whole house smell AMAZING. Also, it is an old school cookie. It is very yummy with a nice slice of triple creme cheese.

Gingersnaps

3/4 cup shortening (I know shortening but I have made it with butter and I LIKE THE SHORTENING ONES BETTER!)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses

2 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 Tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Sugar
Candied Ginger

Cream the first two ingredients until fluffy. Add the next two. It should still be fluffy.

In another bowl, sift the next six ingredients. Add the dry stuff to the fluffy stuff.

Roll into little balls, about the size of a big marble or a dice. Dip one side in sugar. Put a sliver a candied ginger in the middle.

Bake at 375 about ten minutes.

Makes about four dozen.
