Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup margarine
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 cup molasses
  4. 1 egg yolk
  5. 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  10. 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  11. 1 teaspoon ginger
  12. 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Stir in molasses and egg yolk. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg; blend into the molasses mixture until smooth. Cover, and chill for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. Frost or decorate when cool.
