To make simple gingerbread cookies, you need the following:

– a cup of self-raising flour;

– ½ teaspoon each ground spice, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and salt;

– 1 tsp baking soda;

– 8 tablespoons unsalted butter;

– 1/4 tsp black pepper powder;

– ½ cup vegetable shortening at room temperature;

– ½ cup light brown sugar;

– 2/3 cup un-sulfured molasses made of ripe sugar canes;

– 1 big egg;

– icing and food colors

Sift the spice, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, and salt together with the flour. In a bowl, beat the vegetable shortening and the butter at high speed for a minute, and add the brown sugar while still beating for 2 minutes. Add the egg and the molasses, and then, in small quantities, mix in the flour with the spice ingredients. Keep stirring till it forms a stiff dough.

Keep the dough in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Roll the dough on a floured surface. Sprinkle the dough with flour and roll it to the required thickness until it does not stick to the board.

Use gingerbread cookie cutters and make shapes that you love. Transfer pieces to the non-stick cookie sheets and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, changing the position of the sheets from bottom to top. When cooled, decorate with white and colored icing.
