I got this recipe from my local newspaper. I am not sure how many this makes as I use a giant cookie cutter.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large bowl cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Stir in the molasses and egg yolk. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg; blend in molasses mixture until smooth. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured curface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until firm. Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire racks. Frost when cooled.
