Gingerbread Cookie Mix
Place 1/2 cup butter (softened), 3/4 cup molasses and 1 lightly beaten egg in a large bowl. Mix until well blended. Empty gingerbread cookie mix into a separate bowl and stir ingredients together. Add to the butter/egg mixture and mix well. Dough will be very stiff... Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes with the cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, 2"apart. To use as ornnaments, use a thin straw to make a hole for a ribbon in the top of each one before baking. Decorate with raisins, cloves, or small cinnamon candies, if desired. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes.
