DIRECTIONS

  • Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg and molasses.
  • In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients; add to mixture while stirring.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Roll dough out on a floured surface (try to use the least amount of flour that you can to keep dough from sticking) to about 1/8" thick. Using a large cookie cutters (I use a 3 1/2" gingerbread man), cut out cookies and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Reroll dough scraps and repeat.
  • Bake @ 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven and allow cookies to cool on the sheet until they have flattened again. Carefully remove from cookie sheets and allow to completely cool on a wire rack.
