Gingerbread Cookies w/ Frosting

1 cup butter
1 1/2 eggs
2 tbsp light molasses
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger

Cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs and molasses and mix well. Mix in flour and spices. When finished, put in the refrigerator overnight.

Roll out on a floured board or wax paper about 1/4 inch thick. Spray the cookie sheet or use parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

1 1/2 tbsp flour
1/2 c milk
1 lb powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c butter

Cook milk and flour until lumpy, then cool with the lid on. Beat in sugar, butter, and vanilla. Then, divide and add any food coloring you want.

Tip: I like to add cinnamon candy buttons! Make different shapes using different cookie cutters.
