How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Pour shortening into mixing bowl and cool. Add 1 cup sugar, molasses and egg; mix well with wooden spoon. Stir in orange peel, crystallized ginger and chopped almonds.
  • Stir together flour, soda, salt, ginger and cloves; add 1/4 at a time to sugar mixture, mixing well with hands.
  • With lightly floured hands shape in 1" balls, roll in sugar and place on lightly greased cookie sheets 1 1/2" apart. Flatten slightly and press a slivered almond in the center of each. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes (do not overbake; cookies should be chewy). Cool on rack.
