  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and spices together. In a bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in molasses and egg. Stir in flour mixture.
