Ginger Molasses Crisps (aka iron cookies)

3/4 cup butter
1 cup rapadura sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup molasses
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup minced candied ginger, optional
big-crystaled sugar for rolling, optional

Cream butter, sugar, egg & molasses together.  Stir in the dry ingredients.  Stir in candied ginger if you like.  Shape into 1" balls and roll them in the sugar.  Flatten them out a bit on a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes at 350°.
