Gingerbread Men-FOR SANTA!

We're making these for Santa at our house...

These were one of my dad's favorite treats. These are a BIG hit with children since they get to eat arms, heads, and legs!

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. molasses
1 c. white sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
4 cups white wheat flour

-Place butter and sugar in bowl and mix until soft. Add molasses and eggs. Add everything else. Dough will be stiff. Stir with hands if needed. Roll out dough like sugar cookies, and cut out with cookie cutters. -Bake at 325 for 12-15 min (depending on hardness preference). Red hot candies are great for eyes/buttons.
