"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

3/4 c. margarine (can use shortening) 1 c. sugar 1 egg 4 Tbsp. molasses 2 c. flour 2 tsp. soda 1/2 tsp. cloves 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 heaping tsp. ginger
Mix thoroughly. Roll into balls the size of walnuts, then roll in sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes - or less for softer cookies - I usually check them at about 8 minutes.
