Ingredients:  
2/3 c sugar
1/4 c + 1/8 c softened margarine
1/4 c molasses
1 egg
2 c flour
2 t baking soda
1 t ground ginger
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground cloves

cooking spray

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the sugar and margarine with a mixer until well blended and add in molasses and egg. Combine the rest of the dry ingredients and add gradually while blending or stirring. Then divide the mix in half or thirds, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes (makes it easier to roll).

Roll the hardened dough into balls and then roll in the sugar. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and place the cookies every couple of inches. Bake for 12 minutes or until browned, cool on a wire rack.

Final note: I covered the baking sheet with aluminum foil, then cooking spray. That way after a batch cooked, I could just slide the foil off and slide the next batch on. Otherwise you'll need at least 3 cookie sheets.
