Gingersnap Strips Recipe

Ingredients
<br>- ¾ cup shortening
<br>- 1 cup white sugar
<br>- 1  egg
<br>- ¼ cup molasses
<br>- 2 cups all-purpose flour
<br>- 2 teaspoons baking soda
<br>- ½ teaspoon salt
<br>- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
<br>- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
<br>- ½ teaspoon ground cloves
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, or you may use ungreased cookie sheets.
<br>step 2: In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves; stir into the batter until it forms a dough. The dough may seem a bit crumbly, but that is ok. Keep mixing and it will come together.
<br>step 3: Remove dough from the bowl, and knead for a few turns. Pat out into a square, and divide into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece out into a 12 inch long log. Place 3 logs onto each cookie sheet. Wet the tops of the logs with a little bit of water using your fingertips, then sprinkle with sugar.
<br>step 4: Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow the cookies to cool for a couple of minutes, then slice the bars diagonally into 1 inch pieces using a knife or pizza cutter. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. When completely cool, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
