Yummy to My Tummy: Rolled Ginger Cookies

This recipe, shared with me by my friend Kathy, is an oldie but goodie from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Paired with Anna's icing, they're simply irresistible!

Rolled Ginger Cookies

1 C shortening
1 C sugar
1 egg
1 C molasses
2 T vinegar
5 C sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves

Cream shortening & sugar. Beat in egg, molasses & vinegar. Sift together dry ingredients; blend in. Chill 3 hours. Roll dough to desired thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes. Place 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheet & bake 5-6 minutes at 375 degrees. Cool slightly, remove to rack. Makes about 5 dozen.
