A mixture of sugar, butter, ground cloves, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so tasty. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 3 hours.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together rum, water, vanilla, salt, and ground ginger. Stir until salt is dissolved. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Add in molasses, mixing until fully incorporated. Slowly add in flour mixture alternating with the rum mixture, scraping down sides with each addition until both are fully incorporated. Gather cookie dough into two balls and flatten into disks. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare several cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness—be careful not to overwork the dough. Using the lid of a coffee can (standard size, not jumbo) cut out cookies and fit three to a sheet, providing at least an inch between cookies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes—edges will begin to brown but the cookies will still be slightly soft in the middle. Cool completely on a wire rack.
