2 teaspoon ground cloves

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Set aside.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes in 350°F heated oven. Transfer to a flat surface and cool.

In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Spoon icing into a pastry bag with a small round tip and decorate cookies as desired.
