DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together into bowl the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
  • Add the brown sugar and mix well.
  • With pastry blender, cut in butter and lard. (I use my Kitchen Aid for all).
  • Gradually add the molasses and vinegar and mix thoroughly.
  • Chill several hours or until firm enough to roll.
  • Using a small amount of dough at a time, roll out on floured surface to about 1/8 inch or more thickness and cut with fancy cutters.
  • Bake in preheated moderate oven 350 degrees F. for about ten minutes or until browned.
  • Cool and decorate.
