Intro + Ginger Cookies

I'm new here, but like to cook alot. One day I hope to open some sort of food service establishment for my family. But that's not intresting, I think my old lady's recipe for ginger cookies, that we always enjoy this time of year is! So here it is:

4 cups flour
2 tsp bakng soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground cloves
3 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molasses

Combined flour, soda, cinaamon, cloves and ginger. In another bowl beat the butter, sugar, eggs and molasses together. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Roll out dough and cut cookies in your favorite shape. Bake at 375 for 8 to 9 minutes.

Hope you all enjoy it, I'm sure I'll have more to share, and hope to find some good stuff here myself :)
