These are chewy and delicious and they are giant in both size and flavor. Easy to make too :)
2 1/4 cups
all purpose flour
coarse or regular sugar
1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon,
cloves, and salt; set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on low speed
for 30 seconds. Gradually add the 1 cup sugar; beat until fluffy. Add the
egg and molasses; beat well. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls (1 heaping tablespoon dough each).
Roll balls in 2 tablespoons of sugar and place on ungreased cookie
sheets about 2 1/2 inches apart.
4. Bake in a 350F oven about 10 minutes or until light brown, but still
puffed. (Do not over bake.) Let stand on cookie sheets for 2 minutes;
transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
