- In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of the white sugar, molasses and coffee.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, ground nutmeg, ground cloves and ground ginger. Add the flour mixture to the molasses mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
- Roll chilled dough on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 3 or 4 inch sized cookie cutters. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Let cookies cool on wire racks.
- To Make Frosting: Combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups white sugar, the water and vinegar in a heavy saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover and cook over medium-high heat until a candy thermometer reads 234-240 degrees F (112-115 degrees C), softball stage. This should take about 5 to 10 minutes.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for this recipe! I can't tell you how many times I have made these. I am on a low fat diet and it's hard to find a treat that I can still enjoy. These are so yummy an..." See mored soft! I added a bit more ginger and they taste just like soft gingersnaps. YUM! Not to mention, we ended up making a haunted gingerbread house out of your recipe! I don't like the thought of wasting lots of eggs and butter on something you're never going to eat, so I used this recipe, baked it for 15 minutes and left the pieces out overnight to dry out. It worked out beautifully. Thanks again!"
