Number of Servings: 30


    3 cups flour
    1/4 tsp salt
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    2/3 cup unsulphured molasses


In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Cream butter and sugar in separate bowl. Add egg and molasses, beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until incorporated. Divide dough in half, wrap each half in plastic and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutter to cut cookies, place on cookie sheets. Bake for 8-12 minutes. They are done when firm and edges just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute, then transfer to wire rack.

Decorate: either decorate with candy pushed into the dough prior to baking or frost afterward.
