Molasses Crinkles

3/4 cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup molasses

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

Mix shortening and sugar.  Add egg and molasses and beat well.  Sift dry ingredients and add to first mixture.  Chill dough.

Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts.  Dip into sugar and place on cookie sheet.  Sprinkle tops with two to three drops of water.  Bake at 375º for ten to twelve minutes.  Cookies need to be soft yet when removed from the oven.
