Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening, brown sugar and molasses until smooth. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and allspice; blend into the creamed mixture. Work dough with hands until well blended. Cover and chill for about 4 hours. Dough must be thoroughly chilled to hold together.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll out dough paper thin a little at a time. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place on greased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 5 to 6 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.

Excellent recipe. It took about 5 minutes to mix up and about 5 minutes to bake! My three year old loved them.

You have to chill these or they will not hold together. 4 hours minimum! 5 hours is better. Stir them up in the morning, and bake them right after dinner! Spicy, crispy, great with coffee, or hot tea and milk. For those of age, try with pumpkin ale! YUM!

The dough was extremely crumbly - I couldn't get it to roll at all.
