Servings 6 dozen cookies



  • In an electric mixer, cream softened butter with 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and molasses; mix until combined. Add baking soda, salt, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon; mix until combined.
  • Slowly add flour, mix thoroughly.
  • Chill dough for 1-2 hours.
  • Place 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow tray. Roll dough into 1 inch-balls, and coat with sugar.
  • Place dough balls on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes, to desired crispness. (Cookies will get crisper as they cool.) Rotate racks in the oven halfway through baking to prevent over-browning.
  • Cool on wire racks.
