Chewy Ginger Cookies

Ginger cookies. Don't usually like them. They don't have a lot of flavor and they are usually too hard. I now have a recipe I love. And yes, it is from Foster's Market Cookbook. They are supposed to be crispy, but mine are a little chewy - how I like them. I'm going to use these in two ways: with a cherry compote and ice cream tonight for dessert and then crushed for a crust of a key lime pie on Wednesday.

1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup molasses
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt

Cream, then dry. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes on slightly greased cookie sheets. I got 18 cookies. These are yummy. And they have multiple uses!
