German gingerbread cookies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Soft margarine
½ cup Brown sugar
2 teaspoons Ginger
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Ground cloves
1 Egg
¾ cup Molasses
3 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Baking powder

Mix all ingredients together well. Make balls of dough the size of walnuts, and place them on a greased cookie sheet 3-4" apart. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 325 F for 6-8 minutes. Or, if you like, refrigerate overnight. Roll out cold dough for cookie shapes cut with cookie cutters. If dough is sticky, add flour.
