Soft Ginger Cookies

The other night our friends K&S dropped off the yummiest, softest cookies ever. These are like to die for! No joke. 
So, I grabbed the recipe from them and now am sharing it with all of you! 

*2 1/4 cups flour
*2 tsp. ground ginger
*1 tsp. baking soda
*3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
*3/4 cup butter, softened
*1 cup white sugar
*1 egg
*1 TBS. water
*1/4 c molasses
*2 TBS. white sugar (to roll cookies in)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together all dry ingredients. In another bowl cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, then stir in water and molasses. Gradually stir in dry ingredients. Roll cookie dough into walnut-sized balls. Roll in extra white sugar and and then flatten dough.
Place on foil lined cookie sheets for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes on cookie sheet before removing.

(A tip: To get the SOFTEST cookie, cook until almost done- which was just 8 minutes for me. While you let them cool, the hot cookie sheet cooks them to the perfect temp!)

Nothing says The Holidays like homemade ginger cookies. mmm.
