Don't you just love the smell of ginger and cloves? It just smells like fall to me.

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Granulated sugar

Mix shortening, brown sugar, egg and molasses. Blend in remaining ingredients except the granulated sugar. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

Heat oven to 375. Shape dough into round balls. Dip tops in granulated sugar. Place balls, sugared side up, on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
