Glazed Ginger Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon and ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 cup light molasses
1 tablespoon vinegar

2 cups confectioners sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk

Sift flour with salt, baking powder, soda and spices and set aside. In large bowl cream sugar, egg and shortening until light. Stir in molasses, vinegar and 1/2 cup water. Mixture will look curdled. Gradually stir in dry mixture until smooth. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack until just slightly warm, then spread with glaze.

Glaze: Combine milk and sugar. Stir until smooth. Makes about 4 dozen.
