Gingersnaps

I might be a little biased but I am pretty sure that gingersnap cookies are the perfect fall cookie! It might be because when I was younger this is always the time of the year when we would make them or just the taste and smell of them is completely reminds me of fall! And this is of course while I look photos of them around fall things. 
You'll need
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg. Then mix in dry ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 

Heat oven for 375 degrees F. Shape dough into teaspoon size balls. Toss into bowl of granulated sugar until the ball is all covered with sugar. Place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake until set 10-12 min. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. 

They are so yummy! And are soft days after you bake them which in my opinion makes for a wonderful cookie! Enjoy.
