Food Friday: Gingersnaps

This recipe for homemade Gingersnaps has been around for a few years.  It belongs to my friend, Gloria, and she has shared it in various church cookbooks.  I had forgotten about it until a friend was reminiscing recently.  It makes a big, yummy batch of cookies!


1 1/2 C Shortening
2 C White Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 C Molasses
4 C Flour
4 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Cloves
2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Salt

Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs and molasses. Stir in flour and other dry ingredients. Form into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

And did you know ... ginger can be effective in treating nausea, dizziness, inflammation, allergies and even flatulence, so nosh away!
