A Little Cuisine...The Perfect Gingerbread Man/Cookie

(editor's note:  my apologies for not posting this before Christmas, but who doesn't want a delicious gingerbread recipe for New Years... or all year long, right?  I, for one, love gingerbread and can't wait to try this.  Thanks Dawn!)

Who doesn't want the perfect man for Christmas? A strong edge, a soft heart and sweet as candy. Here is the recipe!
"Not my gumdrop buttons!"  he he he

Soft Gingerbread Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 c. molasses
1 tsp. vinegar
2 eggs beaten
5 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp. baking soda

Mix sugar, butter, spices and molasses. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cool to lukewarm. Add vinegar and eggs. Mix well. Add sifted flour and soda blending to a smooth dough. Chill in the fridge. Roll out on floured board and cut with a 4 or 6 inch cookie cutter. (I like to keep them 1/4 inch thick to keep them soft.) Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 for 10 minutes.
