cloves, and salt; set aside.

for 30 seconds. Gradually add the 1 cup sugar; beat until fluffy. Add the
egg and molasses; beat well. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls (1 heaping tablespoon dough each).
Roll balls in 2 tablespoons of sugar and place on ungreased cookie
