Soft Ginger Cookies & GIVEAWAY!

I found these cookies while I was craving ginger one pregnancy ( I know who craves ginger?), and I have LOVED them since. I love them alone, or I like making them into ice cream sandwiches-- it hot down here in Arizona! 


2 1/4 Cups Flour
2 t Ground Ginger
1 t Baking Soda
3/4 t Cinnamon
1/2 t Ground Cloves
1/4 t Salt
3/4 Cup Butter, Softened 
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Egg
1 T Water
1/4 Cup Molasses
2 T Sugar


Preheat oven to 350F.  Combine flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt-- set aside. Cream together butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in water and molasses. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into molasses mixture. Shape into tablespoon sized balls, and roll in remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place cookies on a prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
