Sift together the rye and all-purpose flours, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and salt, and set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter, 1/2 cup sugar and molasses together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Scrape from bowl. Tightly wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease two baking sheets and set aside.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Pick off pieces of dough large enough to make 1-inch balls. Roll into balls and place on baking sheets, at least 1 and half inches apart.
Grease the bottom of a drinking glass and dip it into the remainder of the sugar (1/4 cup). Push the sugared glass bottom onto the balls to flatten and lightly coat them with sugar, re-sugaring the glass after each press.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for a minute or two. Use a spatula to move cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling and crisping. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week
