Ginger Cookies Preparation

This gingery cookie is crisp and has a hint of orange flavor. It is ideal for gingerbread people or holiday cookie shapes. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and spices. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar together, then add egg, molasses, salt and orange rind. Mix well. Stir into dry ingredients. Form dough into a ball shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight. Preheat oven to 375ø. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick on floured surface. Cut into desired shapes. Place shapes unto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 375ø for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned around edges. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Note: Dough will keep up to one week, refrigerated. Cookies can be stored up to 3 weeks in cookie tins. Variation: Decorate cookies with raisins, colored sugar, silver dots, etc. before cooking. Or ice them after they have cooled. Yield: 3 1/2 dozen.
