Spicy Molasses Cookies

25 Jan

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup light molasses
3 tbsp milk
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp salt
sugar, for rolling

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed, about three minutes. Cover and chill until firm, about 4 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool. Makes 4 dozen cookies.
