      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

      2. Cream together the sugars, molasses, shortening, butter, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

      3. In another large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.

      4. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and beat while adding the water. Continue to mix until the ingredients are incorporated.

      5. Measure a heaping teaspoon of dough at time. Roll the dough into a sphere between the palms of your hands then press the dough onto the cookie sheet. Flatten to about 1/8-inch thick.

      6. Bake cookies for 10 to 14 minutes or until the edges begin to brown and cookies are crispy when cool.

      Makes 120 (10 dozen) cookies.

Make sure you use small amounts of dough and leave at least an inch between them - they grow!!!
