Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, and then stir in orange juice, brown sugar and cream of tartar. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the brown sugar mixture.
Shape dough into 4cm balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the dough balls 5cm apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
Bake for 11 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for five minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
