Cookie of the Week 34 - Gingerbread Bears

Gingerbread Bears 

1 C butter
1 C brown sugar
1 C molasses
2 eggs
1 1/2 t salt
4 t cinnamon
4 t ginger
1 t allspice
1 1/2 t ground cloves
1/2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
5 C flour

Cream the butter and brown sugar together, add the molasses and eggs, mix well.  Add the spices, baking powder and soda.  Add the flour 1 cup at a time until well blended.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Roll 1/4" on lightly floured board, cut out in desired shapes - I did bears.   Bake 350 for 8-10 min.

I use meringue powder to make royal icing for decorating.

Very gingery, dark cookies - Al loves them!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
