Food Friday- Gingersnaps

…or as I like to call them, Gingasnaps

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molasses
3/4 cup sugar

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-In medium bowl stir together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening on low speed for 30 seconds. Add 2 cups sugar. Beat until combined. Beat in eggs and molasses until combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour mixture.
-Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the 3/4 cup sugar. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
-Bake in 350 degree oven for 8 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned and tops are puffed. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack and let cool.
