Perfect Gingerbread Cookies


This is the best gingerbread cookie recipe we have ever tasted! Makes approximately 6 dozen 3 wonderfully crisp cookies.

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter (room temperature)
2 cups sugar
1 cup light molasses
2 eggs
4 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ginger (ground)
2 tsp. cloves (ground)

Directions:

1. Cream butter and sugar. Add salt, soda and spices. Add eggs and molasses. Add flour. The dough will be very soft and must be well chilled before handling.

2 Preheat oven to 350?F. Roll dough out on a heavily floured surface. Dough must be rolled very thin- thick- in order to keep the shape of the cookie cutter.

3. Decorate and bake for 8-10 minutes.
