2 1/2   cups   all-purpose flour
2    teaspoons   baking soda
1    teaspoon   ground cinnamon
1    teaspoon   ground ginger
1    teaspoon   ground nutmeg
1    teaspoon   ground allspice
1/2   teaspoon   salt
3/4   cup   shortening
1    cup   packed brown sugar
1      egg
1/2   cup   molasses
1/4   cup   granulated sugar
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar and beat until mixture is combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and molasses until combined. Add flour mixture, beating on low speed just until mixture is combined. (Or using a wooden spoon, stir flour mixture into molasses mixture just until combined.) Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
Place granulated sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar to coat. Place about 1 1/2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until bottoms are light brown and tops are puffed (do not overbake). Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
