VERY Ginger GingerSnaps
The first time I made this variation on a recipe from Mr. Maura's family, his relatives looked a little uncertain. It's since become a much appreciated treat. But don't serve it to people who don't REALLY like ginger.

VERY Ginger Gingersnaps
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups butter
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup finely diced candide ginger
2 cups unbleached flour

Mix well, form balls of approximately 1 Tbsp of dough. Roll balls in sugar (I use superfine sugar), bake 10 min at 350 degrees F.
