Great-Grandpa's Molasses Cookies

Today, I'm posting a yummy recipe that is large enough to feed an army and tasty enough it won't last in your house long. It was one of my great-grandpa's favorite cookies, and now it's one of mine as well!

Here's what you'll need:

3 cups shortening
4 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 cup molasses
1 cup sifted flour
2 t. soda
1 t. salt
1 t. cloves
2 t. ginger
4 t. cinnamon
7 cups sifted flour

~ Mix the first four ingredients well in a large bowl.
~ Combine the next six ingredients with the creamed mixture.
~ Stir in the 7 cups of flour and bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK!! If you do these will be true jaw breakers!!
