Granny's Lumberjack Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup dark molasses
2 eggs
4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Watkins cinnamon
1 teaspoon Watkins ginger

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together the sugar and shortening. Add molasses and eggs. Mix well. Sift together the dry ingredients and stir in. Put 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. Dip fingers into the sugar, then pinch off a piece of dough and roll into a 1-1/2-inch ball. Place dough balls on greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. The dough will keep for a week or more in the refrigerator.
