3/4 cup shortening

1. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and clover, set aside.

2. Cream shortening, then add sugar, molasses and egg. Beat until smooth, add dry ingredients a little at a time and mix it.

3. Roll into a ball about the size of a walnut and dip in sugar.

4. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet. Heat oven to 350. Bake 7 minutes.
