I thought you might like the recipe:
Cream together 1C. shortening and 1C. sugar in a mixer.
Add 1C. dark molasses, 2T. Vinegar, and 1tsp. Vanilla then mix together
In a separate bowl mix 6C. flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. soda, 4 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp. cloves, and 1.4 tsp nutmeg.
Add flour mixture to the first mixture alternating with 1/2 C. hot water.
Chill for 1 hour. Bake for 7-8 min. at 350*
ENJOY!!! I love this recipe because it makes soft chewy cookies instead of the crunchy ginger snap kind of cookies.
