Gingerbread boys...

Gingerbread Boys...
Layton and I love Gingerbread... this recipe is so good and it makes your house smell wonderful!

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup molasses
2 T vinegar
5 Cups Flour
1 1/2  t soda
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 t ginger
1 t cinnamon
1 t cloves

Cream shortening with sugar.  Add egg, molasses and vinegar.  Beat well.  Add dry ingredients. Mix well.  Chill 3 hours.  Roll out on lightly floured board and cut with your favorite gingerbread boy.  Place on greased cookie sheet, or use parchment paper.  Bake at 375 for 5-6 minutes.  Cool lightly and remove to a rack and cool.  Decorate with confectioners icing!  Note:  I mix confectioners sugar with a little bit of water, you want it thick, put in a ziploc bag and cut a very small hole in the bottom corner of the bag!
