My mom's Chewy Ginger Cookies

These cookies are good and yummy for kids to eat. And they are very easy to make. And the ingredients are:

(my mom wrote this part)

¾ Cup shortening
1 Cup sugar
1 egg
¼ Cup molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger

Start by creaming the shortening and the sugar together. Then add the egg, molasses and vanilla and mix well. After combining the dry ingredients in another bowl, add them to the mix. Make sure your dough is well combined.

Next make the dough into 1 inch balls. Take some extra sugar and put it in a bowl. You then roll the balls in the sugar. This is a wonderful thing for children to help with. This dusting of sugar not only adds a little sweet, but it makes the cookies sparkle when they are cooked! Place the balls on an UN-greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
