Posen's gingersnaps

Yield: 4 dozen

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Butter
½ cup Shortening
1 cup Brown sugar
¼ cup Molasses
1 \N Egg
2¼ cup Flour
2 teaspoons Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ginger
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Cloves

Preheat the oven to 350. Cream the butter, shortening, brown sugar, molasses and egg until light and fluffy. Sift together the dry ingredients; combine both mixtures. Form the dough into walnut size balls. With floured fingers, press the balls into flat circles on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove the gingersnaps from the cookie sheet as soon as they are cool and seal in a covered container to preserve their crunch. Source: Top Secret Recipes Submitted By MEG ANTCZAK On 05-14-95
