Gingerbread Cookies

I was shocked when I realized that I didn't have this recipe on this blog. I love making gingerbread and can't wait to have it tomorrow during my daughters Toddler Time. This is an awesome recipe and makes a ton of great and festive gingerbread.


1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Cream together then add:

1 cup molasses
2 tbsp. vinegar (White)

Next, sift dry ingredients together (I just stir them together because I don't own a sifter, but the recipe said to do it)

5 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2-3 teaspoons ground ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves

Mix wet and dry ingredients together. Let it chill in freezer for 1 hour or in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

Bake 375 for 5-7 minutes.
