1 cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup dark molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix sugar, oil, molasses, and egg; stir in flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Divide dough into quarters. Shape each quarter into a 15”X3” strip placing two strips 3 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake until edges are light brown and tops appear cracked, 6-7 minutes for soft cookies and 8-9 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 2 minutes. Cut each strip crosswise into 1-inch slices; remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
