A soft, chewy ginger cookie with a hint of chocolate.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cocoa. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the butter and 1 cup of sugar. Then add the molasses, egg, and milk.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Add the ginger chips and mix until all is incorporated.
Chill the dough for about an hour. Then with a cookie scoop measure out dough and roll into balls.
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Put the 1/2 cup of sugar in a shallow bowl. Next roll the balls of dough in the granulated sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake 10 minutes at 375º F. Remove from the oven and place on cooling racks until completely cooled.
Grab a glass of cold milk and a couple of cookies and enjoy!

This time of year, we are all looking for that perfect cookie recipe that will get Santa to leave a gift for even the naughtiest of people. These cookies might just be them. The simple, no fail base can be customized to whatever candies or chip combination you desire. I have made these for years and have never been disappointed.
