Big Soft Ginger Cookies

It is my turn to provide snacks for the staff room this I have been busy baking each evening.  Tonight I made these cookies....they have just the perfect touch of spiciness and sweetness.  They are big enough to have just one with a cup of coffee and be happy.

2 1/4 c. flour
2 t. ginger
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves
1/4 t. salt
3/4 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
1 egg
1 T. water
 1/4 c. molasses
 2 T. sugar( save to roll the cookies in)

Beat sugar and butter until creamy.  Beat in the egg, then the molasses and water.  Add flour, spices, salt and baking soda.  Roll into balls the size of a walnut.  Roll the balls in the reserved sugar.  Place on a baking mat that has been sprayed with cooking spray, on a silicone mat, or on parchment paper.
Flatten cookies slightly.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Cool several minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
