 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4   c            Shortening
    1       c            White sugar
    2       ts           White vinegar
      1/2   c            Molasses
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Cinnamon
    2       ts           Ginger
      1/2   ts           Nutmeg
    2       c            White flour
 
   Beat shortening till fluffy.  Add sugar & continue to
   beat until well combined.  Add the rest of the
   ingredients in order, beating well after each
   addition.  When the ingredients are well mixed, wrap
   the mixture in waxed paper & refrigerate for 1 hour to
   make the dough easier to handle.
   On a floured board, roll out the dough until it is
   about an 1/8 inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut
   into cookies & place on a cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10
   minutes at 275F.  Cool for a couple of minutes on the
   sheet & then remove to a wire rack to cool.
