Prep: 2 hr 15 min
Start To Finish: 4 hr 45 min
Makes about 9 dozen 2 1/2 inch cookies

ingredients
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups dark molasses
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 7 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • About 5 tablespoons half-and-half
preparation
  • In large bowl, stir together brown sugar, shortening, molasses and water. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet. On floured surface, roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut with floured gingerbread cutter or other favorite shaped cutter. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched (for a softer, chewier cookie, bake 8 to 10 minutes). Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • In large bowl, stir together all frosting ingredients until smooth and spreadable. Decorate cookies with frosting.
Time-Saver: Using a tub of ready-to-spread frosting instead of making the frosting can save you a few precious moments during the busy holiday season.
