Yummy Moravian Star Cookies

Just made these yummy star cookies in time for our holiday party!  Lots of delicious spices and these were a crowd favorite.  These are delicious, year round!

Here's the recipe:

4 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 and 1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 cup + 2 TBsp brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temp
1 cup molasses
1/4 tsp baking soda, disolved into 1/2 tsp vinegar

Mix dry ingredients together, then mix sugar in.  Then add butter.  Add molasses and vinegar.  Mix thoroughly.  Chill for several hours.

 Dough needs to be cold to roll out.  Add enough flour as you work.  Roll to a thickness where you can easily cut a star out and it won't stick to surface.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Remove to a rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
