  • Preheat oven to 375°F.

  • In another bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda, allspice, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Take teaspoons of dough and roll in white sugar and in the palm of your hand to make little balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
