DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat butter 30 seconds, until soft.
  • Add sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Add egg and molasses and beat well.
  • Add 1/2 the flour mixture and stir in, then stir in the rest of the flour mixture.
  • 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.
  • Roll into 1 inch balls, then roll the balls in sugar.
  • 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.
  • Let, cool 2 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. Store in cookie tins.
