Cream butter, sugar and molasses until well mixed. Add spices; mix well. Stir in flour. Using hands, shape dough into a ball. Do not chill dough. On a floured surface and working with a small amount of dough at a time, roll dough about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes (for large size cookies), or about 6 minutes for smaller cookies. Let "set" on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Decorate as desired.
