Ginger Snaps and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm going through all of my really worn and used recipes and transferring them to the internet. Among my many wonderful finds, I came across: Ginger Snaps 3/4 cup shortening 1 cup sugar 1 egg 1/4 cup molasses 1 1/2 tsp soda 1 tsp cloves 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp ginger 3 cups flour 1/2 cup sugar for dipping Cream shortening and add sugar gradually. Add egg and molasses. Beat until smooth. Sift flour, soda, and spices into creamed mixture. Stir well... Roll dough into 1/2 inch balls and then roll into sugar. Bake at 350 for 7 minutes. Grandma Caringella's Chocolate Chip Cookies 1 1/2 cup shortening 3/4 cup white sugar 1 1/2 cup brown sugar 3 eggs 3 cups plus 3 tbsp. flour 1 1/2 tsp soda 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips Cream the shortening and the sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, soda, salt, flour, and vanilla. Mix well and then fold in the chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes.
