This is Asher's special creation. He is very proud of this one.
You make the dough, divide it into 3 parts and chill. I chilled mine overnight.
Roll dough onto floured surface.
He LOVED doing this. This may be his love language.
Our pretty plate.
Asher really wanted you to see this one up close.
View on my counter. Want to come over and get some?

Soft Ginger Cookies
(from this cookbook)
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
7 cups flour
Beat butter. Add sugar. Then add egg and beat well. Add molasses and buttermilk. Stir in dry ingredients, adding flour last. Divide the dough into thirds and chill thoroughly. Roll out dough on floured surface and bake for 6-8 minutes at 375 degrees. I baked mine for 6 minutes. For buttermilk, I added 1 tbsp vinegar to 1 cup milk. Decorate as desired.
