Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ginger, baking soda, cream of tartar and cloves in medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, with electric mixer beat Country Crock Spread with 3/4 cup granulated sugar and molasses until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Dough will be soft.
  3. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar with remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Shape dough into balls (about 1 slightly heaping tablespoon). You should get about 40 balls. Roll balls in cinnamon sugar to coat. Place 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are beginning to brown. Remove from oven and cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Remove cookies and cool completely on wire rack.
