  • Instructions

    1-In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and salt. Set aside.

  • 2-In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the molasses, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

  • 3-Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until the dough comes together. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches a workable consistency.

  • 4-Divide the dough in half and shape each portion into a disc. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until firm.

  • 5-Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • 6-On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to approximately ¼ inch thickness. Use gingerbread-shaped cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes. Transfer the cut-out cookies to the prepared baking sheets, leaving about an inch of space between them.

  • 7-Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • 8-Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can decorate them with icing, sprinkles, or other festive toppings as desired.
