Gotta Go Gingersnaps

My recipes shared at year end were popular so this week's post participating in the challenge is going ginger, Gingersnaps! I hadn't made these in years and my mom had requested a batch when I saw her next. This test run of cookies came out just right.

The recipe reads as follows:

2  cups brown sugar or substitute 1 cup Splenda brown sugar mix
1/2 cup molasses
2-1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. salt (optional)
1 cup shortening (I use the sticks)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix wet ingredients, add dry ingredients. Roll into ball with teaspoon and roll in sugar. Smash slightly with fork tines. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. 

Enjoy!
