4 eggs
8 C. flour
2 T. + 2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cream Crisco and sugar. Add molasses and eggs. Mix well. Combine flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, cloves and ginger. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Shape 1/2 cupfuls of dough into balls. Roll in sugar. Place 4 at a time on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes, or until edges are set.
