Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F. Reserve 1⅔ cups flour. Mix 1 cup flour and remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl at low speed until blended. Scrape bowl often. Increase speed to medium and beat two minutes or until very smooth. Reduce speed to low; add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until dough is very stiff. If you are using a small mixer, the last flour may need to be kneaded by hand. Baked gingerbread readily absorbs moisture. Store in a cool dry place. Roll dough into a circle approximately 12" in diameter, " thick. Dip cutters in flour before cutting. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet. Cut holes using a round cake decorating tip. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool. Tie on ribbons for hanging. Makes 2 dozen.
