  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       1 c  Sugar
       1 c  Margarine; or
     1/2 c  Lard; and
     1/2 c  Butter
       2 ts Soda
       1 c  Molasses
       1 tb Ginger
     1/4 c  Water; hot
   1 1/2 c  Flour
  
      Mix together sugar, shortening, molasses and ginger. Dissolve soda in
   hot water. Add to sugar mixture. Stir in flour. Pinch off little pieces of
   dough the size of walnuts. Place on greased baking sheet. Space them, as
   when put in oven they will puff up and when done will flatten out and
   crackle all over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, checking
   often as they burn easily. Let cool before removing from pan.
