    These are the best ginger cookies I have found, I put a little extra spice in them too! :D

    Soft Ginger Cookies

    3/4c. butter
    1c. sugar
    1/4c. molasses
    1 egg
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    2 tsp. ground ginger
    1/2 tsp. ground cloves
    2 1/4c. flour

    Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugar together, then mix in molasses, egg, baking powder and spices; mix well. Add flour and mix well. Roll in your hand, then roll in sugar, then bake 10-15 minutes.

    Ten minutes of baking time is not enough in my oven, they are still pretty undercooked, but approximately 14 minutes will yield a cookie that is crispy on the outside and soft inside! I leave the cookies round, they flatten out some when they bake. Recipe will make a couple of cookie sheets full of 2" round cookies, I didn't count! LOL!
