Soft ginger cookie. Tastes better after a few days in storage. My mom's recipe.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Cream the shortening, sugar, egg, molasses and water. Mix in the flour, salt, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  • Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes.
