    Cookin-jo's Note:

    These cookies really do stay soft! They are rolled in sugar and the tops crack while baking. I often double the recipe because they go so fast. I think this recipe came from Canadian Living magazine.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Beat butter 30 seconds, until soft.
    3. 3
      Add sugar and beat until fluffy.
    4. 4
      Add egg and molasses and beat well.
    5. 5
      Add 1/2 the flour mixture and stir in, then stir in the rest of the flour mixture.
    6. 6
      The dough should be at a consistency that you can roll it with your hands into balls. I often have to add quite a bit more flour.
    7. 7
      Roll into 1 inch balls, then roll the balls in sugar.
    8. 8
      Place cookes 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes. Do not brown! The cookies should be almost underbaked in the middle.
    9. 9
      Let, cool 2 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. Store in cookie tins.

      My kids loved these cookies! The only suggestion I would have is to put the dough in the frig for about 15 minutes to make it easier to form balls. It's a definite keeper!

      Delicious! I made these after seeing your photo on the home page. I love these types of cookies. I added no extra flour , just what the recipe called for. I also didn't roll them with my hands though. I used my cookie scoop , dropped the scoop into a bowl of "Sugar In The Raw" (personal preference, I like the larger grains for the cookies) and rolled it around like that. Baked each pan for 9 minutes. Heaven!!! Thanks so much for posting!

      I love this recipe - and it makes the house smell soooo good. Refrigerating the dough for a short time helps with the rolling. I'll be making this recipe again!
