Jane Sage shared her cookies with the Young family while we were at the North West Angle. The original recipe was in the Dunkerton United Methodist Church Cookbook. Mrs. Newman Mortenson was my mother’s aunt. The cookies are very good.

3/4 C. shortening
1 C. sugar
1/4 C. molasses
2 C. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 egg
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and molasses. Sift dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Chill 1 hour. Form into 1″ balls and roll in sugar. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 375º for 8 to 10 minutes.
