Blue Ribbon Gingersnaps

Got these from Becky, just modified them a bit. They are GOOD, soft, and go wonderfully with hot chocolate!

3/4 c shortening
1 c packed light brown sugar
1/4 c molasses
1 large egg
2 c flour
2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t allspice
1 t ground ginger
1/2 c sugar (for rolling)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream shortening, brown sugar, molasses and egg in mixer bowl. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, blending until mixed. Dough can be chilled for easy handling.Shape the dough into balls the size of whole walnuts. Roll balls in sugar, place on baking sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes. Cool on sheet one minute before transferring to rack.Makes 3-4 dozen.
