Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Instructions

Combine the sifted cake flour with the cinnamon and salt, nutmeg, ginger and pepper. Stir gently to mix well. Combine dark molasses, dark brown sugar and butter or margarine. Add to flour mixture and mix well. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Using 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll out 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a 1-1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove to wire rack and cool. Makes about 8 dozen cookies.
