Winter Cookies

Ingredients

3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 to 3 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
3/4 cup softened butter
2 cups sugar
2 well-beaten eggs
1/2 cup molasses
2 teaspoons vinegar

Instructions

Heat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and spices. Stir with a whisk until blended, then set aside. In a mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, molasses, and vinegar and beat until smooth. Gently beat in the flour mixture just until blended. Form the dough into ¾-inch balls and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies become slightly crinkled. Cool on a rack.
