  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 60 servings
  
       1 c  Shortening
       1 c  Sugar
     1/2 ts Salt
       1    Egg
       1 c  Molasses
       2 tb Vinegar
       5 c  Sifted flour
   1 1/2 ts Soda
       1 tb Ginger
       1 ts Cinnamon
       1 ts Cloves; ground
       1 x  Raisins
  
   Thoroughly cream shortening, sugar and salt. Stir in egg, molasses and
   vinegar. Beat well. Sift dry ingredients; stir into molasses mixture.
   Chill about 2 hrs. On lightly floured surface roll to 1/8 thickness. Cut
   with cookie cutter. Place 1 apart on greased cookie sheet. Make eyes and
   buttons with raisins. Bake in moderate (375 deg.) oven for about 6
   minutes. Cool slightly and remove from sheet. Allow to finish cooling on
   wire racks. Store in tightly covered tin. Keeps well for 3-4 weeks. NOTE:
   I use a 4-in. cutter.  For smaller men, you may need to reduce the baking
   time by a minute or so.
