Every December, we bake a great number of gingerbread cookies!  They are for presents, important ornaments for Xmas tree, and our daily and camping treat! . . We have been making with this recipe for so many years, and I don't remember where I got the recipe --- it just works perfectly every time, and is very accommodating! We make about 3 times the amount here, and it takes about 5 hours to make, decorate and bake!  Big tradition! . 125g butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 1tsp Baking Soda 1tsp Cinnamon 1tsp Ground ginger 1tsp Ground clove 1/2 tsp Salt 1/2 cup Molasses 3 cups Flour 1/4 cup Cold Water (depends on the dough condition) 1) Cream butter, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, and salt. 2) Add molasses. 3) Add flour. 4) Add cold water. 5) Roll, cut and decorate. 6) Bake at 180C for 8-12 min. (depending on the thickness.  when you tough, the surface should have some resistance to your finger). Yum!
