Spicy Molasses Cookies

Spicy Molasses Cookies

1 cup Sugar
3/4 cups Crisco (vegetable Shortening)
1/4 cup Molasses
1 whole Egg
2 cups Flour
2-1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg together until well combined. Dump in dry ingredients, stirring dry ingredients together lightly. Mix together until dough is combined.
In your hands roll dough into walnut-sized balls, then generously coat each ball with sugar. Place balls on a baking sheet and bake for 9 to 11 minutes, allowing to bake for about a minute after cookies begin to crack.
Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool…though these are delicious while still warm.
