Honey Molasses Whole Wheat Cookies

Another day that just needed cookies and yet the cupboards are bare... so this is what I came up with and I'm glad I did, they are great!
Cream 1/3 cup shortening (butter would probably work) with 1 cup sugar. (Next time I'll try a combo of white and brown sugars) Add 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla. Then 1/4 cup of molasses and honey (in whatever proportion you have). Add 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger. 1/2 tsp nutmeg (or to taste, I love nutmeg). Then slowly add 2 cups of whole wheat flour and mix until just mixed.
Makes 24 cookies, bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. They are like molasses cookies but a little crisper and sweeter.
