Soft Molasses Cookies

1 1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
4 1/2 cups flour
4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and molasses; mix well. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Roll into balls; roll in sugar. Bake at 375 on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes.

**This recipe makes a lot of cookies; if you halve the recipe it's about the same as a normal batch of cookies.
