2 ½ cups AP Flour
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. ground cloves
Pinch of salt
1 ½ sticks butter at room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar
¾ cup molasses
Turbinado sugar for coating
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt and set aside.
In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and then the molasses. In thirds, gently mix in the flour mixture until just combined.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the cookie dough into 1-inch balls onto a sheet tray covered with turbinado sugar. Gently toss the cookies in the sugar, covering them completely. Place the sugar-coated dough balls on another sheet tray and gently squish a little.
Bake for 9 to 10 minutes. Remove the cookies to a rack to cool. Yield: 24 cookies.
