   Cream shortening; gradually add 1 cup sugar, beating at
   medium speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
   Add egg and molasses; mix well. Combine flour, soda, salt,
   and spices; mix well.  Add about one-fourth of dry mixture
   at a time to creamed mixture, mixing until smooth after
   each addition.  Chill dough at least 1 hour. Shape dough
   into 1-inch balls, and roll in sugar.   Place 2 inches
   apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees for
   10 minutes.  (Tops will crack.)  Cool on wire racks.
