1/3 cups molasses
cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
cups all- purpose flour
cup finely chopped candied lemons peel
tsp. ground cinnamon
tsp. ground cloves
tsp. ground coriander
tsp. ground nutmeg
tsp. ground cardamom

Preheat oven to 400F (205 C). In a small saucepan, combine molasses and water. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until blended; cool slightly. Stir sugar into cooled molasses mixture. In a large bowl, combine baking soda, flour, lemon peel, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, nutmeg and cardamom. Gradually stir molasses mixture into flour mixture. Blend quickly and thoroughly until smooth. Divide dough in to thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a thin sheet. Cut into 3 x 1 rectangles using a ruler and pastry wheel. Rinse a baking sheet in cold water. Do not dry. Place cut out cookies on damp baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheets; place on cooling racks. When cooled, store in a tightly sealed container. Makes about 100 cookies.
