Very yummy

Ingredients

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup dark-brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 cup unsulfured molasses
6 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 teaspoons ground ginger
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
Raisins, dragées, and/or red hot candies for decoration (optional)
Royal Icing for decoration (optional)

Method

In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and molasses.
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture.
Divide dough into thirds and wrap each third in plastic wrap. Chill for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick between two pieces of waxed paper. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Transfer shapes to ungreased cookie sheets. If desired, decorate with raisins, dragées, and/or red ho candies. Refrigerate about 15 minutes.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crisp but not dark.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 1 minute, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. If desired, decorate with Royal Icing.
