Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a sifter and sift into a bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg. Then, stir in the molasses.
Add the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture.
Shape the dough into 1-inch sized balls, rolling them into the granulated sugar.
Place the cookies a couple of inches apart onto the lined baking sheet, flattening slightly.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, letting them cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
