Kris Kringle's Krinkles - 1999

3/4 cup shortening 1 cup white sugar 1 egg 1/4 cup molasses 2 cup flour 2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. ginger 1/4 tsp. cloves Combine all ingredients, mixing well with the addition of each ingredient. Form dough into a log. Cut log in half. Roll each half into a 1 1/2 - 2" diameter log. Cut each log into 1 - 1 1/2" pieces (depending on size of cookies desired). Form each piece into a ball. Place dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten the balls with a fork dipped in sugar. Place cookie sheet in a 350 F. oven for 10-12 minutes. The finished cookies should have cracks on the surface. The cookies should have a crispy surface upon cooling and a chewy center. Submitted by Bob Simmons, Montague, P.E.I.
