Molasses Sugar Cookies

These cookies won the best tasting cookie at this year's cookie exchange!!  They really are quite delectable!

Molasses Sugar Cookies
Makes 30 cookies

3/4 cup vegetable oil  (I use coconut oil, but NOT olive oil!)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour (can mix 1/2 white and 1/2 whole grain)
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda

Mix oil, sugar, molasses and egg; beat well. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. If dough is too soft to handle, refrigerate for 1 hour or more. Form into 1" balls (I use a scoop); roll in granulated sugar. Place 2" apart on un-greased cookie sheets. Do not flatten balls. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
