First of all, you need to mix up melted margarine, egg and 1 cup sugar, and put them in a medium bowl.
Shake or stir these mixed ingredients in the molasses, and it will become a molasses mixture.
Now mix up flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda and cloves.
Blend all these mixed ingredients into molasses mixture.
After that, cover dough and refrigerate it for 1 hour.
After one hour, preheat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F) and roll the refrigerated dough into balls (walnut sized) and also roll them into the sugar.
Then place these cookies on baking sheets but make sure you keep cookies at least two inches away from each other.
Keep these cookies in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes and stop baking when you see cracks appearing on the top cookies.
Now place these baked cookies on wire racks in refrigerator and wait until they are thoroughly chilled.
