Ginger cookies

3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
4 Tbsp dark molasses
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger

Blend the margarine and sugar.  Beat in the egg.  Mix in the molasses.
Mix together the flour, soda, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger and blend in.
The recipe says to form into balls, roll in sugar, and flatten with fork,
but I just throw lumps onto a cookie sheet with a spoon.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 min.
