1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground Cinnamon
2 tsp. Baking soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup Butter (softened)

1/2 cup Molasses
1 large Egg
Turbinado Sugar (you can use regular granulated if you prefer)
Cream Butter and Sguar together.
Add molasses and egg - mixing well between each addition.
Mix until well combined.
Slowly (and in batches) add the flour mixture and beat until completely blended.
Cover and Chill for about an hour in the the Fridge (until firm)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Pour the Turbinado Sugar into a bowl
Roll the chilled dough into balls about 1" in diameter.
Roll the balls into the sugar until evenly covered, then place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
