Food on Friday - Gingersnap Cookies

This has been a ridiculously busy week. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to make any new recipes or even get old recipes ready for a bloggy share. So I'm pulling this one from the archives. I'm so excited about fall coming that I am ready to do some baking. I foresee some gingersnap cookies in my future. 

Gingersnap Cookies
Ingredients
2 c sifted flour
1 Tbsp ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c shortening
1 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 c molasses

Instructions
Sift together dry ingredients.
Cream shortening until soft. Gradually add sugar, creaming after each addition until mixture is fluffy. Beat in egg and molasses. Add sifted dry ingredients. Blend well.
Form small balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until tops are slightly rounded, crackly, and lightly browned.
Remove from sheets, cool completely on cake racks before storing.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies. Do you have a recipe you want to share? Link up below!
