Grandma B's Ginger Snaps

3 cups brown sugar
1 ½ cups shortening or butter or half of each
3 eggs

Beat well and add:

1 cup molasses
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon

Work in 5-6 cups flour. Roll into small balls and press with a fork or flatten and dip in sugar. Place on greased cookies sheet.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

This is a large recipe. If you don't want to cook them (and eat them!) all at once, form into logs, wrap in plastic and freeze. When you want to cook them, just cut off half inch thick slices and place on cookies sheets. Cook as noted previously.

Yummy . . . I like the idea of making logs and freezing. With only two in the house, we don't need that many cookies. But having a tasty treat on hand to share when someone stops by will make everyone happy *s*
