These tender cookies are so soft and flavorful. You'd never guess they're also lower in fat. Ingredients :
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1 large egg, room temperature

2 cups white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, beat 2/3 cup sugar and sunflower oil until blended. Beat in egg, then molasses. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves; gradually beat into sugar mixture.
Combine confectioners' sugar and remaining sugar. Shape dough into 1-in. balls; roll in sugar mixture. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake until edges are firm, 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
