our favorite fall cookies

Remember last year when we had our virtual cookie exchange? Yes, we saw some delicious recipes. Mandy shared her favorite Ginger Cookies which are absolutely divine. We are both hooked on them. I use a similar recipe that I found on The Pioneer Woman's site. They are called Spicy Molasses Cookies and they are to die for....really. They fill your home with a delicious aroma as they bake and they are just perfect for fall. Enjoy!

Molasses Cookies
1 cup sugar
¾ cups shortening
¼ cups molasses
1 whole egg
2 cups flour
2-½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoons ground cloves
¼ teaspoons ground cardamom
¼ teaspoons salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg together until well combined. Dump in dry ingredients, stirring dry ingredients together lightly. Mix together until dough is combined. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls, then generously coat each ball with sugar. Place balls on a baking sheet and bake for 9 to 11 minutes, allowing to bake for about a minute after cookies begin to crack. Remove cookies from baking sheet.
