Byerly's Gingerbread Men
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light molasses
Grated zest from 1 orange
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, molasses and finely chopped
orange peel. Blend in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate, covered,
for several hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll dough on floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness for crisp
cookies or 1/4 inch thick for softer cookies. Cut out with
gingerbread man cutters.
Place one inch apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake until
lightly browned; start checking after 6 minutes, as they burn
quickly. Cool and decorate as desired.
