      Preheat oven to 375.  Grease cookie sheets. Cream together shortening
   and sugar.  Add molasses and egg.  Add dry ingredients and mix well. Roll
   dough into 1 balls and roll in sugar. Once they are on the cookie sheet,
   make an imprint in each with your thumb and add a bit more sugar in the
   thumbprint. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
     * I usually add a bit of mace along with the dry ingedients.
