  • Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, clove and salt in large mixing bowl. Stir well to blend.
  • In separate large mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, egg and molasses together, using an electric mixer, thoroughly until light and fluffy.
  • Add dry ingredients gradually to creamed mixture, mixing well. Knead dough with hands until smooth. Chill dough for easy rolling, if desired.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Roll out each portion on floured surface to an 8" x 12" (20 cm x 30 cm) rectangle, 1/4" (6 mm) thick.
  • Transfer dough with large spatula to prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or just until set. Remove from oven and cut immediately into pieces (like a puzzle) while still soft. Cool on wire racks. Pack pieces into a box with note "Assembly required before eating."
  • Decorate with icing, if desired. See Decorators' Icing recipe link above.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
