"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 1/2 sticks margarine (I have made these with canola oil, which would be 3/4 cup)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ginger

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat well the first four ingredients: Margarine, sugar, egg and molasses.
Add the remaining dry ingredients.
Chill overnight.
Form small balls and roll in sugar.
Leave space between balls on cookie sheet.
Bake about 10 minutes, and watch carefully; remove just before the "drop" stage--when cookies have spread, crackled, and are puffed.
Cool slightly on cookie sheet, then on wire rack.

These are Jack's favorites! This recipe came from my friend Jane Hundley. Also, I have been in a hurry and skipped the chilling step and they came out fine.
