Reva’s Molasses Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cup Sugar (divided)
3/4 cup Vegetable shortening (melted)
2 cups All purpose flour
1/4 cup Molasses
1 Egg (slightly beaten)
2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Ground cloves
1/2 tsp Ground ginger
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt

In large bowl, combine 1 cup of sugar with melted shortening, flour, molasses, egg, baking soda, cloves, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Chill dough for about 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Form walnut sized balls of dough using hands. Roll the balls in remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, coating completely. Place onto prepared cookie sheets, about 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies spread and are lightly golden browned on bottoms. Cool cookies completely on wire racks.
