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

  1. Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and baking soda in a bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. Divide dough in half, flatten into 2 thick circles and wrap in plastic wrap.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to roll out.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Roll out, cut into desired shapes and bake until golden brown.
