Add to the molasses mixture, stirring until completely blended. Chill. (Chilling overnight allows the seasonings to blend. Wrap in plastic wrap to do this.)

Roll out dough on floured board to ¼-inch thickness.

Cut with cookie cutters. Place on greased cookie sheets.

Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for about 10 minutes.

Remove from the cookie sheet and cool on a rack.

Frost and decorate as desired. Yield: about 4 dozen cookies depending on the size of the cutter.
