Ginger Snaps

My friend, Renae, gave me Ginger Snaps for a Christmas gift and I immediately thought of how much my Dad would love for me to bake these for him.  She shared the recipe with me and I plan to surprise my Dad with a tin of Ginger Snaps for Christmas this year. 

                                                     Ginger Snaps

2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp. molasses
1 egg

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon.  Set aside.  Cream margarine.  Add sugar, egg, and molasses.  Beat well.  Add flour mixture and beat until smooth.  Mixture will be very stiff.  Take a teaspoonful of mixture, roll into a ball, then roll in sugar.  Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 - 12 min. at 350 degrees.
