Preheat oven to 425°. Prepare baking sheet: either cut parchment paper to size, or lightly grease.
In large bowl, mix all dry ingredients: flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, cloves, and salt.
Cut in cold butter with pastry cutter or 2 knives until crumbly. Another method is to grate briefly frozen butter, then stir.
In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients: eggs, molasses, milk, and vanilla.
Incorporate wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stir just until combined. Do NOT over mix. Place on work surface and knead a few times to fully blend all ingredients.
Shape dough into 8-inch circle, then cut out 8 triangles.
Place triangles on prepared baking sheet.
Brush on milk and sprinkle sugar over tops of triangles.
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes. Enjoy!
