Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar, divided

  • ¾ cup margarine, melted

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup molasses

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  1. Mix 1 cup sugar, margarine, and egg together in a medium bowl until smooth; stir in molasses.

  2. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and ginger in a separate medium bowl; add to the molasses mixture and stir until well combined. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. While the oven is preheating, roll dough into 1-inch diameter balls; roll each ball in remaining 1/2 cup white sugar before placing 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

  5. Bake in batches in the preheated oven until tops are cracked, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
