Norwegian Gingerbread

I would totally make these gingerbread cookies anytime of the year.  They are perfect with tea, are not overly sweet and have great flavor.  If you are into spice- like in a Chai kind of way- these are perfect for you.  Try them!

Norwegian Gingerbread

6 cups unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
4 teaspoons ground ginger
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons cloves
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup unsulphured molasses
2 eggs

Cream butter and sugar for 5 minutes.  Add in molasses and then eggs.  Mix spices, salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour together in a separate bowl.  Add to the creamed mixture, just until fully incorporated.  Place two inches apart on cookie sheet.  Bake at 350F for 12 to 14 minutes. Frost with royal icing if desired when cookies are fully cooled.
