Soft Molasses Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup Crisco shortening 
1 cup molasses ( I used Grandmas blackstrap) for milder taste use any mild molasses or Table syrup.
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat shortening till fluffy, beat in sugar till fluffy, beat in eggs then add, vanilla & molasses. Mix all dry ingredients together & slowly add to your molasses mix. Chill dough. Once chilled roll dough into walnut sized balls. Dip the tops of the dough into an egg wash made from 1 beaten egg + 1 tablespoon of water beaten together with a fork. Then dip tops of cookie into granulated sugar. Place dough balls onto greased cookie sheets sugared side up & bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen big soft chewy cookies. Easy & a very good texture with old fashioned taste. These cookies stay soft if you place a piece of white bread in with them in your container. If bread hardens just replace with a new piece of bread. This trick keeps all soft cookies soft & fresh.
