1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. molasses
1 Tbsp. white distilled
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix shortening and sugar; then

flour your cookie cutter and cut out cookies. Place them on a
greased cookie sheet leaving 1-inch space between them. You
may decorate with M&M's, walnuts or raisins. Bake 6 to 7
minutes. Cool. Use sugar icing to decorate.
3/4 c. sifted confectioners
2 to 3 Tbsp. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla
Beat all ingredients until smooth. If you want differ-
ent colors, separate into small bowls and add a different color
to each. Mix well. Spread on gingerbread cookies.
