Grandma B's Ginger Snaps
1 ½ cups shortening or butter or half of each
Beat well and add:
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.
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.
