1. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt and baking soda. Mix on low speed until combined. Add margarine or shortening and mix until mixture looks sandy. With the mixer running on low, slowly add the molasses and yogurt. Continue to mix until thoroughly combined.
2. Remove dough from bowl, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for several hours or overnight.
