DIRECTIONS

  • Place margarine in large mixing bowl; soften it in a microwave for a few seconds.
  • Cream sugar and margarine; add molasses and water.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and allspice.
  • Add to the mixing bowl; mix together.
  • Let dough cool, covered, in freezer for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Roll out dough; cut out with cookie cutters.
  • If the cookies are thin, bake for 6 minutes.
  • If cookies are thick, bake for 8 minutes.
  • Cookies will appear slightly underbaked but that's what makes them taste so good and chewy!
  • Cool cookies on a wire rack.
  • These cookies stand their own without frosting, but if you want to frost them, mix a cup of powdered sugar with a little water to make frosting. Draw a few accent lines or dots on the cookies.
