Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup of sliced candied ginger chunks
  • Additional 2 tablespoons white sugar (for coating cookies before baking)


Directions
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.

2
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses.

3
Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Fold the sliced candied ginger to the mixture, being careful not to over-stir.

4
Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.

5 Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.

6
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
