Ingredients
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup molasses
Directions

Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and baking soda in a bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter and brown sugar until combined. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then the molasses. Slowly add the flour mixture. Mix well after each addition of flour. The dough will be stiff.

Divide dough in half, flatten into 2 thick circles and wrap in plastic wrap.

Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to roll out.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll out, cut into desired shapes and bake until golden brown.
