1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup margarine, softened

Preheat oven to 350F.


Sift together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.


Set aside.


In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy.


Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses.


Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture.


Shape dough into walnut size balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2" apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.


Bake for 8-10 min. in the preheated oven.


Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 min. before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


Store in an airtight container.
