INGREDIENTS
2 1/4 Cups All purpose flour, sifted before measuring
2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Ground cloves
1 tsp Ground ginger
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Kosher salt
3/4 Cup Unsalted butter, softened
1 Cup Sugar
1 Large egg
1/4 Cup Molasses
Additional sugar to roll cookies in
Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift dry ingredients together and set aside

Beat butter and 1 cup granulated sugar in large bowl of an electric mixer on high speed until light (1 minute). Add egg and molasses. Stop the mixer and add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Using about 1 1/2 teaspoons of dough for each, roll dough into balls. Roll in sugar until fully coated. Arrange on baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. If you prefer a thin, crisp cookie, they may be flattened with a sugared glass. If you don’t flatten them, they will be chewy.

Bake until set, 9 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Can be left plain or decorated or glazed as desired.
