These ginger snaps are no ordinary ginger snaps.  My great grandmother made these when ever my grandfather(her son) was grumpy.  She made him watch as she made them and joked around the whole time making him happier. So that's the story now lets make some snaps.

Step 1: Ingredients

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4cup  molasses
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
additional sugar
Surely your great-grandmother didn't use shortening in the original recipe. Do you know if she used butter or lard?
Very good!&nbsp; I added about 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves to make them a little spicier.<br />
Great idea I will try it next time I make them.<br />
<p><em>My favorite cookies! I can't wait to bake them. Thank you</em></p>
There really good, I like mine less cooked and soft.<br />
