GRRRRR!!! OK, so go into the search function, choose Advanced, select Titles only, and then type in gingerbread in the box. It worked for me but maybe its because it was my search. LOL! Sorry folks.

2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup dark molasses
2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 350F.

Mix together the flour, soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and then stir in the water and molasses.

Gradually stir the flour mixture into the molasses mixture. Shape the dough into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto a parchment lined or ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Thank you so much for posting this recipe, they sound wonderful. Can't wait to make them for Christmas.

No path leads to yesterday.
