Soft Molasses Cookies

This recipe was pulled from the old Morgan 6th Ward Cookbook that was put together 20+ years ago.  The recipe is from Kim Jones, a former classmate who now lives in Star Valley Wyoming.  I made it for the first time a couple of days ago, and cannot believe the compliments I'm getting on it !
It is super easy, and so so good!

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses

Dry ingredients:
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger

Cream shortening and sugar together well.  Add molasses and egg and beat well.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to sugar mixture and mix well.  Form into small balls and roll in sugar.  Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake !
