Ginger Chewies

I just tried this recipe out today and boy is it a winner! I really love ginger snaps and these are really similar. They are nice and soft and chewy and, mmmm, so good!

2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 c. softened butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 c. molasses
1.4 c. sugar

1. Mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and gloves.
2. Mix butter, brown sugar, egg and molasses in a separate bowl.
3. Add wet mixture to flour mixture and mix well.
4. Roll dough into 1" balls, roll in sugar and put on greased cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 10-12 min. at 350°.
