SOFT gingerbread cookies
these are so very good...and if you make this whole recipe, you'll have about 100 cookies (if you use a 3-4 inch cookie cutter)...so some of you might want to half this recipe. :)

in a big big big bowl, mix all these ingredients together.

1 pint* of sugar
1 pint of shortning
1 pint of molasses**
1 pint hot water
2 teaspoons baking soda (mix in with hot water)
3 teaspoons ginger
3 eggs
add vanilla

mix with flour*** til stiff****
then place on a floured surface to roll out (roll out to about 1/4 inch thick) and cut out...you'll use alot of flour for this too
bake at 350 for 12 minutes

* 1 pint = 2 cups
** buy 2 jars of grandma's or other molasses
*** you'll end up using alot of flour ( i used alomst a 5 lb. bag)
**** it will be close to the consistency of play-doh and it gets tough to mix, but it is well worth it!
