Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

I received these as a gift and I gobbled them down in about 2 seconds. I was told I could have the recipe, but it didn't come for a few days. In the meantime, I couldn't wait, so I attempted to make another recipe. They were good, but paled in comparison to these! These are the best! After a little reminder that I NEEDED to have the recipe, I got it, and now I need to make some more!

Original recipe from Ali @ www.gimmesomeoven.com

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup molasses
2 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and salt. Set aside.

With and electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until combined. Add in the eggs and molasses, and beat until combined. Then slowly add in the dry ingredient mixture until combined.

Roll the dough into small balls (about 1" in diameter). Fill a small bowl with sugar (I used raw sugar. It make the cookies look cool and gives the cookies a little crunch. Love it!), and roll each ball in the sugar until it is completely coated. Place on cookie sheet, and bake for about 8-10 minutes. One they are done, remove from the oven and let cool for a minute or two. Then transfer to wire racks and let cool completely.
