Chewy Ginger Snaps

2½ cups shortening
3 cups sugar
3 eggs
¾ cup molasses
6 cups flour
1½ tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp ginger
3 tsp cloves
3 Tbsp baking soda

Beat shortening until fluffy. Add sugar, eggs, and molasses; mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls. Flatten slightly with fingers. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350˚ for 8-10 minutes. Don’t over-bake or they won’t be soft.
