Spicy Ginger Crinkles

as promised!

  • 3/4 cup shortening (or butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (or half white and half brown)
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 and 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves (my own addition)
  • 1 tsp soda

Cream shortening and sugar – add egg and molasses. Mix dry ingredients and add to shortening mixture.

Shape in balls, dip in white sugar, press down lightly with a fork and bake at 350 for 8-10 min.

A century old (or more) recipe from Roger’s grandmother “Nannie” – written in her own handwriting and given to me almost 33 years ago for my wedding recipe box.
