Big Soft Ginger Cookies


2-1/4 C Flour
2 t Ginger
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Cinnamon
1/2 t Cloves
1/4 t Salt
3/4 C Butter, About 12 Tablespoons
1 C Sugar
1 Egg
1 T Orange Juice Or Water
1/4 C Molasses
3 T Sugar, For Rolling

Whisk together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, microwave the butter for about 20 seconds to soften. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and mix well. Add the Orange Juice/Water and molasses. Mix well. Add the dry ingredients, one cup at a time, to the wet ingredients. Mix well after each addition. If the dough is too sticky to work with, you can refrigerate it for about an hour. Shape dough into walnut sized balls. Roll in sugar and press into cookie shape between hands. Bake in 350F oven for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets for 10 minutes before moving to wire rack.
