 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1 1/2 ts Ginger
  • 1 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Cloves
  • 1/4 ts Cardamom

This gingery cookie is crisp and has a hint of orange flavor. It is ideal
for gingerbread people or holiday cookie shapes.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and spices. In a medium
bowl, cream butter and sugar together, then add egg, molasses, salt and
orange rind. Mix well. Stir into dry ingredients. Form dough into a ball
shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Preheat oven to 375ø. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick on floured surface. Cut
into desired shapes. Place shapes unto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at
375ø for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned around edges. Transfer to wire
racks to cool.

Note: Dough will keep up to one week, refrigerated. Cookies can be stored
up to 3 weeks in cookie tins.

Variation: Decorate cookies with raisins, colored sugar, silver dots, etc.
before cooking. Or ice them after they have cooled.

Yield: 3 1/2 dozen. Amanda Cushman, freelance recipe developer and food
