Thoroughly cream shortening and sugar; add the molasses and well beaten egg. Add sifted dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Roll into small balls (size of a walnuts); dip or roll in granulated sugar and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Store in airtight container. Longer kept, the better the cookie. Yield: 3 dozen.
