Ginger Bears



Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream together shortening, brown sugar, molasses and egg. Sift together remaining ingredients (except sugar) and stir into molasses mixture. Form dough into 3 sizes of balls to create bear bodies-large balls for bodies, medium balls for heads and small balls for ears, arms and legs.
Roll balls in sugar. Put figures together on a greased cookie sheet, allowing 2" between them Bake about 12 mins. until springy to the touch.
Cool on sheet for 5 mins. and remove to wire rack to cool completely.
