These are softer than regular gingerbread cookies.


  • 1 1/4 cups butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups flour

  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ginger
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cloves
  • 1/2 cups molasses


Cream margarine, eggs, molasses and sugar. Sift dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients. Roll into balls and dip in sugar or roll and cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters.

Bake 10 minutes for round balls and 8 minutes for rolled cookies at 350 F.

Let stand before taking out of pan. Cookies will be soft but will
harden as they cool.
