1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, molasses, and egg.
In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine.
