Preheat oven to 350°. Blend Crisco, sugar, egg and molasses until creamy. Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger, mixing thoroughly. Form into balls the size of a walnut and roll in a small bowl of sugar until coated. Place about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Do not flatten. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes. Cool on rack.
