  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark molasses
  • 1 large egg


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves together into a separate bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, mix the oil, brown sugar and molasses until well blended.  Add egg and mix until blended.  Mix in the flour mixture until it is incorporated.

Using a melon baller to form cookies, place mixture on baking sheets.  Bake the cookies until the tops are set and crackled, 15-18 minutes.  When a little cooled, transfer cookies to wire racks until completely cooled.
