These rolled cookies are crisp and spicy. They are great Christmas cookies, and do well with the plastic cookie cutters that have lots of detail on the inside. We began using this recipe with the Twelve Days of Christmas cookie cutter set that had some amazing detail; you use a glaze on it which collects in the detail creases so you don’t have to individually decorate each cookie, just brush on the glaze. On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me (etc etc etc).

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tablespoons molasses
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoons cloves

Cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and nmolassess. Add combined dry ingredients and mikx well. Chill dough 4 hours or overnight. Roll out dough on floured surface to 1/8″ thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters, pressing firmly on cutter; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 f for 6 to 8 minutes. Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet. Brush with glaze if desired.

1 cups powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon corn syrup
