Merry Christmas Molasses Cookies

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

2/3 cup shortening

1 1/3 cups molasses

2 eggs

5½ cups all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

Mix brown sugar, shortening and molasses. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Heat oven to 375°. Roll dough ¼ inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place about 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake until no indentation remains when touched, 7 to 8 minutes; cool. Frost and decorate as desired. About 5 dozen 3-inch cookies.

Note: For crisper cookies, roll dough Ys inch thick; bake 6 to 7 minutes.
