Ingredients

    6 cup Wheat flour, white, bread, enriched
    1 cup Butter, unsalted
    .5 tsp Baking Powder
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    1 cup, packed Brown Sugar
    4 tsp Ginger, ground
    4 tsp Cinnamon, ground
    1.5 tsp Cloves, ground
    1 tsp Black Pepper
    1.5 tsp Salt
    2 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    1 cup Molasses, blackstrap

Tips

When using the baking powder and soda as measured in this recipe I use a scant more of each to get a fluffy cookie.


Directions

Prepare:
Bowl 1: Sift together Flour, Soda and Powder.
Bowl 2: In custard cup sift all spices including sale.
In Bowl 3, Electric Mixer: Beat room temperature butter with brown sugar until fluffy about 2 to 4 minutes.
Add spices to butter mixture.
Add 2 eggs and mix in well, do not beat.
Add Flour mixture to butter mixture and on low speed beat in until just mixed.

Divide dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap and chill one hour.

Roll out approximately 1/8 inch thick, and cut into shapes approximately 2" x 3" cookies of your choice. Or small gingerbread people. Flour the cutters well.

Place on baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake until light and fluffy approximately 10-12 minute. Do not over bake.They should have a bread like consistency. If you bake too long they will get hard.
