Ginger Cookies

Now that it's fall, I want to be in the kitchen all day. Breads, soups, cookies, anything that has to be baked and simmered. I ordered The Family Flavor cookbook recently and have tried several recipes... all have been so good! I made these one weekend and we devoured them. Usually ginger cookies aren't my favorite, but these were so soft and chewy. I'll definitely be making them again! 

Ginger Cookies
from The Family Flavor

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 t. ground ginger
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. ground cloves
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 
1 cup sugar, plus more for rolling
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses

Set oven to 350. Combine flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside. Mix butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and molasses and mix well. Add flour mixture. Pour a small amount of sugar into a small bowl. Portion dough into small balls and roll into sugar. Set on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack.
