¾ c butter
¾ c Crisco
2-¾ c sugar, divided
2 eggs
½ c dark molasses
4 c flour, sifted
2 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
2 t ground cloves
2 t ginger

Beat butter until creamy. Gradually work in 2 c sugar. Continue creaming until light. Beat in eggs and molasses thoroughly.

Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Gradually beat in flour mixture into creamed mixture. Beat hard. Mixture will be soft, so chill dough about an hour for easier handling.

Roll balls of dough about the size of a walnut in the remaining sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet 2-in apart (will flatten during cooking). Bake at 375 for 10 min.
