(From one of my son’s 1st grade teachers, bless her heart)

2-1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. white sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
1/4 c. molasses
2 Tbsp white sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Sift together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.

In large bowl, cream together butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in water and molasses. Gradually stir sifted ingredients into molasses mixture. Shape dough into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place cookies 2″ apart onto ungreased cookie sheets, and flatten slightly.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.

Makes 24
