Old-Fashioned Gingersnaps

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 large egg
1/4 cup sugar for rolling

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, salt, allspice and cloves.

Add the butter and the brown and granulated sugars to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add molasses and egg; beat until well incorporated. Add the flour mixture in batches and mix until combined.

Add the 1/4 cup sugar to a bowl. Roll the dough into balls that are 1 inch in diameter, then roll in the sugar. Place 12 balls on a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies 9 to 11 minutes, rotating halfway through the baking time. Remove cookies and cool on wire racks.
