German Gingerbread Cookies Recipe


3/4 c Soft margarine
1/2 c Brown sugar
2 ts Ginger
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Cinnamon
1/4 ts Ground cloves
1 Egg
3/4 c Molasses
3 c Flour
1 ts Baking soda
1/2 ts Baking powder

Mix all ingredients together well. Make balls of
dough the size of walnuts, and place them on a greased
cookie sheet 3-4" apart. Flatten with a glass dipped
in sugar. Bake at 325 F for 6-8 minutes. Or, if you
like, refrigerate overnight. Roll out cold dough for
cookie shapes cut with cookie cutters. If dough is
sticky, add flour.
