Cream shortening and sugar together. Sift together flour, soda, salt, and spices. Mix dry ingredients with creamed mixture. Add egg and molasses. Roll into balls.
Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly and turn upside down in powdered sugar. Makes about 3 dozen. I usually double the recipe.
