2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1

1

1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon allspice
1/8
teaspoon ground cloves
1/2

1
cup packed light brown sugar
2
tablespoons light molasses
1

Topping
2
tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
2

  1. In medium bowl, stir together flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, allspice and cloves; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar on medium speed 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add molasses, gingerroot and egg; beat on low speed until blended. Add flour mixture; beat until soft dough forms.
  2. Divide dough in half; shape each half into 12-inch log. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or freeze 30 minutes until firm.
