I love these. I used to have a recipe for Soft Ginger Snaps and this is pretty close to those.

How to Make Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat the egg, and stir into the water and molasses. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Shape dough into walnut size balls, and roll them into the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an air tight container.
