¼ c. butter or margarine
½ c. white or brown sugar
½ c. dark molasses
3 ½ c. all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons water (or as needed)


Beat together the butter and sugar. Beat in the molasses. Whisk together the flour, soda, cloves, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture in about 3 parts alternately with: 5 tablespoons or more water.
You will have to work in the last of the flour mixture with your hands. You may want to roll the dough out on your greased cookie sheet; cut with cookie cutters and remove dough from around it. Or you can pick up the cut out cookies and re-position after placing on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes or according to thickness until lightly browned. Cool on the cookie sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate as desired.
