Makes 12 (6”) boys or 36 (3”) cookies

1 cup Brown sugar (packed)
1/3 cup Shortening (softened)
1 ½ cup Dark molasses
2/3 cup Cold water
7 cup Flour
2 tsp Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Allspice
1 tsp Ginger

In mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, shortening, and molasses; mix thoroughly. Stir in cold water. In separate bowl, mix together flour, soda, salt, allspice, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon. Stir dry ingredients into wet mixture. Chill dough.

Roll dough out very thick (1/2”). Use cookie cutter to cut out cookies and use a spatula to transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Press raisins (or gumdrops or red hots) into dough for eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons. Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Cool slightly then carefully remove from baking sheet.
