{Gingerbread Cookies}

These little guys were really fun to make, and they were really yummy to eat. 🙂

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg yolk
2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Cream butter and sugar. Add molasses and egg yolk. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Chill for about an hour. (My dough was pretty stiff so I actually just rolled them out with out chilling it, and they turned out perfect)

Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough to 1/4″ thick and cut with cookie cutters. Place cookies 2″ apart on a baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. If you bake them on the short end they will stay soft and chewy and if you bake them on the longer end they will be nice and crispy. I like mine soft and chewy so I baked for exactly 8 minutes and they were wonderful!
