Cry Baby Cookies

These have been a favorite of mine since I was little and now my kids love them. Each Christmas these are on our neighborhood "goodie plates". I am loving the Holidays so far this year and loving the smells of different yummy cookies. I don't know about you but I can never have too many cookie recipes! Enjoy.

2 C flour
2 t soda
1 t cloves
1 t ginger
1 t cinnamon
1 c sugar
1 egg
3/4 C shortening
4 T molasses

Mix well. Roll into balls and roll in a sugar/cinnamon mixture. Press with fork. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Takes at least this long, but watch closely because they are dark cookies and can easily overcook! Should yield 3 doz. Cookies!
