In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground ginger, and salt; set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together at medium speed the butter, honey, and molasses until light and fluffy; about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for about 30 seconds each.
Lower the stand mixer speed to slow and incorporate the flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until just combined. Do not overbeat.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill the dough for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the turbinado sugar into a bowl. Roll the cookie dough between your hands into 1” balls.
Roll the balls into the turbinado sugar and place on top of the parchment lined cookie sheet, 12 cookies at a time. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
If you are concerned about phytic acid in whole wheat pastry flour, substitute high-extraction flour or sprouted flours (available here).
