  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees F).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 2 cups sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and ginger; stir into the sugar mixture until well blended. Mix in cinnamon chips. Dough will be stiff. Roll into walnut sized balls and roll each ball in remaining sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until tops are crackled. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These baked up pretty, delicious and crackly. I followed the recipe exactly. I had no problem rolling the dough into balls or the sugar. I tend to like thicker cookies, so on the last cookie s...

These had a nice flavor. Don't be afraid to put the 2 T of vanilla in, like I was; it's balanced by the spices. However, this was not the molasses spice cookie I thought it would be, but a li...

These cookies are so chewy, spicy, and good. I used 3 sticks of butter (eeek, good thing it makes a lot of cookies!) in place of the 1.5 cups of shortening and reduced the salt to three-quarter...

These are very good cookies with a taste all their own. I only made two minor changes, and that was to use margarine instead of shortening(I personally don't like using shortening for cookies) ...

Amazing little cookie. I did end up cutting this recipe in half, I almost wish I hadn't. Only change I made was using all butter. I found that nine minutes at 350* was perfect for these cookies....

These must be the best cookies in existence. INCREDIBLE!!!

Pretty good cookies. I like the cinnamon chips, but they are sweet, so I'd scale back on the sugar next time by about 1/2 a cup. With all of the sugar in the dough and rolling in sugar, it wa...
