Soft Ginger Chews

I love the flavor of ginger snaps, but I'm not so in love with their crunch.  Call me a sissy, but they make my teeth hurt.  So at our house we enjoy these Soft Ginger Chews.  They're so good that I'll have even you crunch loving people converted.  So give them a try and see what you think...

2 1/2 c. flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. cloves ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1tbs. water
1/4 c. molasses

1.  Preheat oven to 350.
2.  Cream butter & sugar, beat in egg and added water.
3.  Stir together dry ingredients and slowly add to butter mixture and mix thoroughly.
4.  Shape into balls & roll in sugar.
5.  Bake 6-8 min. and allow to cool.
