Spiced Molasses Cookies

I love the spices in these cookies – ginger, cloves, cinnamon. The flavors blend well with the molasses. Be sure not to overcook the cookies, this will make them hard and crunchy. To keep the chewy texture, keep a close eye on them in the oven. Pull the cookies out when they are just starting to turn a light brown on top and you can see that they are getting crusty on the top layer of the cookie.
