2 1/4 Cups Unbleached Flour
1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup (1 1/2 Sticks) Softened Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Dark Molasses
1 Large Egg
3 1/2 Ounces Crystallized Ginger Chips
Preheat your oven to 375° F. Sift the dry ingredients together in a medium size bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Stir in the molasses and the egg. Add the dry ingredients to the ginger chips. For the best result, chill the dough for 1 hour. Form 1 inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Make sure that they are about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven while the cookies are still soft. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes before removing and placing on a serving plate. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
