How to Make Soft Gingerbread cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.

    Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture.

  7. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
    Store in an airtight container.
