Gingerbread

Gingerbread Day! I use the old Fannie Farmer recipe every year:

1 cup butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. molasses
2 T. vinegar
5 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves

Cream together butter and sugar. Stir in egg and liquids and beat well. Add flour and spices. Wrap and chill for at least 3 hours. Roll to 1/4" thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 6 min. Let cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Makes 4-5 dozen.

Jo:

This is the same tried and true recipe that we used when I was a child. Always turns out good!

They are so cute!
