I'll just go ahead and post the recipe. I got it from the Chicago Tribune, about ten years ago.

Swedish Spice Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon each: ground cloves, ginger, cinnamon, salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Sift together flour baking soda, spices, salt; set aside.

3. Beat butter and 1 cup of the sugar in a large bowl until light--1 minute. Add egg and molasses; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined.

4. Using about 1 1/2 teaspoon of dough for each, roll dough into balls. Roll in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar until completely coated. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet, spacing 2" apart. If you prefer a thin, crisp cookie, flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Skip this step if you want them chewy.

4. Bake until set, 9-10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool.
