Here is the Recipe for the gingerbread cookies that we made today, they really are the best.
1/2 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 egg (beaten), 1/3 cup molasses, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon,1/4 ground cloves,
2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Cream butter and sugar together until crumbly. Add the beaten egg, molasses, and spices and mix well. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Add a little at a time to the egg mixture until a smooth dough forms.
If the dough is a little dry add a little milk, if the dough is a little wet add a bit more flour.
When dough is well mixed, cover and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, roll out dough on a lightly floured board and cut into desired shapes. place cookies in a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
