Shellie's Gingerdoodles

Soft, chewy and so addicting. My kids go nuts for these!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 tsp pure vanilla
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar for rolling
Heat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugars til light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and molasses. Whip 1-2 minutes till it turns light brown. Stir in remaining ingredients just till combined. Roll a tablespoon of dough into a ball, then roll in sugar. Place on greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes or until outsides look cooked but insides still soft. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack. Makes 2 1/2-3 doz
