Our families favorite gingerbread cookie recipe. This recipe is great for making decorated cookies for Christmas.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, & spices. Set aside. In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed and beat in egg and molasses.
With the mixer on lowest speed gradually add in the flour mixture a little at a time until completely incorporated. Scrape down the edges of the bowl as necessary. Turn the dough onto a clean work surface and knead gently. Form into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
