1Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, stir butter,
brown sugar, molasses and egg until well mixed.
In a separate bowl, add flour, baking soda, cinnamon,
ginger, cloves and salt. Stir dry ingredients until
combined, add to wet ingredients. If dough is soft,
chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Form the dough
into 1 1/4-inch balls, and dip tops in sugar. Place
3 inches apart on greased cookie sheets and bake
10-12 minutes. Cookies will be soft. For crisper
cookies, bake 2-3 more minutes.
