Xmas Molasses Cookies

3/4 cup melted Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup molasses
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Combine Crisco, sugar, egg and molasses. Sift dry ingredients, and combine. Mix until well blended.

Divide the dough into balls of manageable size. Chill, then roll, cut and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

In my opinion, these cookies are what Christmas tastes like.
