Step 1

Stir together the flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.

Beat shortening until softened. Gradually add the 2 c sugar, beat until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses; beat well. Add half of flour mixture, beat until combined. Finish adding flour by stirring in with a wooden spoon.

Using a small scoop, shape dough into 2" balls. Roll in coarse sugar and place on UNbuttered cookie sheet about 2 1/2" apart.

Bake 350 deg for 12-14 mins. Cookies will be light brown and puffed. Overbaking will make them hard. Let cool 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack for complete cooling.
