Old-Fashioned Chewy Double Ginger Cookies

1/2 C shortening (125 ml)
1 C sugar (250 ml)
2 large eggs
1 C molasses (250 ml)
3 1/2 C all-purpose or whole wheat flour (875 ml)
1 Tbsp ground ginger (15 ml)
1-1/4 tsps baking soda (6 ml)
1 tsp ground cloves (5 ml)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (2 ml)
1/2 C fine-chopped crystallized ginger (125 ml)
sugar

In large bowl, cream together shortening and one cup sugar until
light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time; beat in molasses.

Stir together flour, ground ginger, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon;
stir into creamed mixture in three parts. Mix in crystallized
ginger until smooth.

Remove dough from bowl and wrap in floured wax paper; refrigerate
overnight. (Dough will be quite soft.)

With lightly floured hands, form dough into 1" (2.5 cm) balls;
gently roll in sugar. Place about 2" (5 cm) apart on greased baking
sheets.

Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 - 12 minutes or just until set. Remove
to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 6 dozen.
