Molasses adds sweetness to these cookies and gives chewiness to every bite. Eat at least one warm right off the cooling rack with a tumbler of cold milk.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Whisk the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside. 

Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add the molasses and egg and beat until lighter in color, about 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture and mix on low until well blended. 

Using a tablespoon, form the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place each ball 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden and crackled, 12 to 15 minutes; the cookies will still be a little soft. Baking these in 3 batches one sheet at a time gets you the nice, crackly top. The second sheet of cookies can stay on the counter until ready to bake. Form the remaining dough, roll the balls in sugar and place on the now cooled first baking sheet. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, and then remove to a rack to cool completely.
