Well, it's getting to be that time of year for pulling out the holiday recipes and get baking in the kitchen. I came across this recipe in one of the cookbooks I recently purchased.The scent of the cloves just gets me in the mood for this time of year. This is the best recipe for gingersnaps I've ever had.I hope you like it,too. Enjoy!

2t. baking soda
1C. sugar

2C. flour, sifted

Cream shortening. Add sugar, molasses and egg. Beat well and add dry ingredients. Beat until
