      Preheat oven to 325F. Cream butter with sugar.  Beat in eggs, molasses
   and vinegar.  Sift together and add flour, baking soda, ginger, cnnamon and
   cloves.  Mix until blended. Form dough into 3/4-inch balls.

   down the characteristic crinkled surface. Makes about 10 dozen 2-inch
       I've made these once.  They were very good.  I used 2-1/2 teaspoons
   ginger without problem; next time I'll use 3 tsps. The cookies were a bit
   chewy in the middle. -- AE
