Soft Ginger Cookies

Ginger cookies are one of my favorite cookies, but I don't like when they come out dry or crunchy.  This recipe is great if you love ginger cookies, but want them to be soft!

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2-1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Additional sugar

1.  In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and molasses. 
2.  Combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
3.  Roll into 1-1/2-in. balls, then roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. 
4.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until puffy and lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
