     Gingerbread men

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

Ingredients
3/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup salad oil
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
 
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions
In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat molasses, oil, brown sugar, and egg until well blended.
In a medium bowl, mix 2 3/4 cups flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Stir into molasses mixture, then beat until well blended. Divide dough in half, gather each half into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
Unwrap dough. On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll one disk at a time to about 1/4 inch thick. With floured 3- to 4-inch cutters, cut out cookies. Place about 1 inch apart on buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Gather excess dough into a ball, reroll, and cut out remaining cookies.
Bake cookies in a 350 regular or convection oven until edges begin to brown slightly, 8 to 10 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely. Pipe Powdered Sugar Icing over cookies as desired.
