1/4 cup molasses
1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, blend the shortening, sugar, molasses and egg. Add the baking soda, flour, clove, ginger, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
Form into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar.
Place on cookie sheets 2 inches apart and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on a flat surface.
