Ginger Cookies

I make these cookies once in a while because I like the addition of spices in them..The ginger adds a kick to the cookies..They are soft,chewy and delectable..Here goes my recipe..


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter/margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the 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. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the egg mixture. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in  2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an 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.
