These are spectacular soft and spicy ginger cookies, with raisins (optional).
Servings: 3 dozenPrep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add the cup of sugar, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves.
Beat until well-combined. Add egg and molasses; beat again. Beat in as much of the flour as you can, then stir in remaining flour and the raisins, if using, with a heavy spoon. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll in turbinado sugar. (Can substitute regular sugar.)
Place balls on a very lightly greased cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake at 350-degrees for 10 minutes and no more. Do not overbake! Let stand a couple minutes before using a spatula to slide off the baking sheet onto a wire rack to cool.
