  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied ginger (i will use more next time!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Combine flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt, mixing to combine. Add to creamed ingredients and mix well. Chill.
  3. Roll into balls smaller than golf balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. These spread a little so don't crowd.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  5. NOTE: These are very plain looking cookies. You may want to melt chocolate chips and drizzle over the cookies to fancy them up a bit.
