When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a dish, combine 3/4 c sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, and 1/4 tsp of allspice. Stir those together.

Scoop some of the cookie dough into your hand and roll it into a ball about the size of a golf ball.

Roll the dough ball in the spiced sugar to coat it.

Place the dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and repeat. I generally make about 9 at a time, spacing them out about 2 1/2 inches between them. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until they are done. Cool the cookies on a rack. Repeat with all of the remaining dough, placing your bowl of dough back in the fridge between batches.
