Gingerbread cookies

This is the last of the cookie recipes shared by Dana. These all sound so good I think we should try to get her to be a regular contributor here!


3c. flour
2t. ground ginger
1t. ground cinnamon
1t. baking soda
1/4t. ground nutmeg
3/4c. (l & l/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2c. molasses
1 egg


Mix first five ingredients together. Beat butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. Press dough into a thick,flat disk. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least four hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350. Roll Dough 1/4in. thick. Cut into shapes with 5in. cookie cutter. Place 1 inch
