Zehnder's Old Fashioned Gingerbread

8 TBSP softened butter

˝ tsp salt

˝ cup light brown sugar

1 TBSP ground ginger

˝ cup molasses

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 egg

˝ tsp ground allspice

2 ˝ cups all purpose flour

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp baking powder

Cream butter and sugar together, then beat in molasses and egg.
Add all dry ingredients and spices together and mix until well blended.
Add dry ingredient to creamed butter/sugar mixture and mix until well blended.
Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface about three-quarters of an inch thick.
Using a cookie cutter cut out cookie figures or into three inch squares( if you’re not artistic) and place in a pre-heated 350F oven for 7-8 minutes.
Transfer to a cooling rack.

Personally, I like mine plain, but you can frost the cookies if you wish (2 cups powdered sugar, 1/3 cup butter, 1 tsp. vanilla and 2 TBSP milk or cream) or just sprinkle with regular sugar while they’re cooling.
