How to make it

  • Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves, and salt. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet, about 3" apart. Bake 9-12 minutes, or just until set. Remove to wire rack to cool.
  • ICING:
  • Place chips and shortening in microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered, on medium-high heat for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes, stirring every 15 seconds, until smooth.
  • Dip half of each cooled cookie into melted mixture; sprinkle tops with crystallized ginger. Place on waxed paper; let stand until coating is firm.

    White chocolate yogurt coating, if available, makes these yummy cookies even better. I am able to purchase the yogurt coating at the local mennonite store. The yogurt coating also may be available at a local candy store, or candy making store. I have made them with both, and prefer white yogurt coating to regular white chocolate hands down.
