DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the molasses and eggs.
  • In another large bowl, sift dry ingredients. Combine mixtures and knead into a smooth ball. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  • On a well-floured surface, roll out a small amount of the dough until it is 1/4 inch thick.
  • Place one of the paper pattern pieces on the dough and cut around the edges. Gently, using the spatula, lift the dough and place it on the foil-lined, prepared cookie sheet.
  • Put all scraps into a bowl and cover. Save these to make gingerbread men.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly firm.
  • Let cool on racks until firm enough to handle.
  • Peel the foil off the sections and set the pieces aside to dry thoroughly overnight.
