    1/2 c. margarine
    1 c. sugar
    1 c. molasses (light or dark, the color you use determines the color of the dough)
    5 c. flour
    3 tsp. ground ginger
    2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. ground cloves
    1 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2/3 c. water
    Cream together until light the margarine and sugar. Beat in molasses. In a separate bowl, mix together the rest of the dry ingredients. To the first mixture, add the dry ingredients alternately with the water. Form dough into a ball. Roll out dough to 1/4" thick and cut your pattern. When you cut windows and doors, do not remove the dough since it will help keep the window/door shape while baking. Bake on lightly greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until pieces are firm to the touch. As soon as you remove from the ove, recut the window cut-outs and then remove them when the dough is cool.
