Ginger Snaps

Though I can't recall ever eating ginger snaps, it sounds like a Christmas cookie recipe. Check below for Grammy's tips.

Ginger Snaps

1/2 cup shortening (or butter)
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup dark molasses
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups pastry flour
2 ts baking soda
1 ts cinnamon
1/2 ts cloves
1 heaping ts ginger
dash of salt

-Mix ingredients into dough. Spoon into drop cookies and place on baking sheet.
-Bake at 350 for 10 min.

"If you want them to be fancy -- when thoroughly mixed, take a rounded ts of dough, roll into ball in hands, then roll that in white sugar. Place on baking pan."

"I just make drop cookies, they taste just as good."
