3In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt; add to the molasses mixture and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough.

4Roll dough into 1"–1 1/2" balls and roll the balls in sugar to coat. Place about 2" apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
