Moravian Christmas Cookies
In a large mixing bowl, combine molasses, shortening, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and salt.
Add flour, a little at a time, to form dough.
Cover with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Divide dough into 4 balls, and keep covered with a damp towel.
On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball, one at a time, to about ⅛-inch thick (very thin).
Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters or rim of a glass and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake about 6 minutes, until lightly browned.
⅓ cup molasses
