This is a very good, slighty crunchy cookie. I liked to make small gingerbread man shapes when my kids were small. Prep time includes chilling time.

Directions

  1. Put shortening and molasses in small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat and cool.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and stir in the cooled molasses mixture.
  4. Mix well; cover container and chill in refrigerator for 3 hours.
  5. Roll dough on lightly floured board to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  6. Cut in desired shapes and place cookies about 2 inches apart on ungreased shiny cookie sheets.
  7. Work quickly because dough softens as it warms.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees about 8 to 10 minutes.
