In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together butter and 1 cup of sugar until smooth.
Add the molasses, oil, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg and mix until combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until smooth.
Slowly add the flour until just combined.
Cover bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (or up to 2-3 days).
When dough is chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place remaining 1 cup of sugar in a shallow bowl.
Remove dough from refrigerator and use a scoop to form the dough into round balls. Roll each ball of dough in the sugar. Place dough balls onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment or silicone mats.
Bake for about 10-11 minutes, or until the cookies are just set and starting to brown on the edges. They will still be soft.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes, and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
