  1. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup margarine and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and molasses until well blended. Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water; stir into the molasses mixture. Gradually mix in the flour to make a smooth dough. Cover and chill dough for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. Cut into circles using a 3 inch round cutter. Cut a smaller 1 inch circle out of half of the cookies. It is easier to cut the center hole after the cookies have been placed onto the cookie sheets. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges begin to darken. Allow cookies to cool completely before sandwiching. Frost solid cookies and place a cookie with the center hole on top.
  4. To make the frosting: Beat 1 tablespoon of margarine and water together. Blend in the ginger and salt. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar until the desired consistency is reached. Sandwich between cooled cookies.

Too much flour makes these crumbly. Addictive if you can get them made.

these are very good but a little sweet

Yummy. The frosting is what really makes these cookies.

Not bad. Nice cookies for the fall, cute with turkey-shaped cookie cutters.

These are really nice cookies for the fall. The dough is quite soft and is easier to work with if chilled for a while. I use graduated flower shaped cutters, it adds an extra touch.

I used only the icing part of this for another cookie and it's very good.

A lot of work. They were good, but I probably wouldn't make again.
