Gingerbread Cookies

Look at my handsome gingerbread boys and beautiful gingerbread Christmas trees and star cookies!!! One word: DELICIOUS ๐Ÿคฉ

๐ŸŽ„2/3 cup room temperature softened butter
๐ŸŽ„3/4 cup brown sugar
๐ŸŽ„2/3 cup molasses
๐ŸŽ„1 large egg
๐ŸŽ„1 teaspoon vanilla 
๐ŸŽ„3 1/2 flour
๐ŸŽ„1 teaspoon baking soda
๐ŸŽ„1 tablespoon ground ginger
๐ŸŽ„1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
๐ŸŽ„1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
๐ŸŽ„1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
๐ŸŽ„1/2 teaspoon salt

๐ŸŒŸ Work with the wet ingredients first. Beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until creamy. Add the brown sugar and molasses and beat on medium high speed until combined and creamy; making sure to scrap down the sides and bottom of the mixerโ€™s bowl as you go. Add egg and vanilla and beat on high speed for 2 full minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.ย 
๐ŸŒŸ In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together until combined. On low speed, slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined.ย 
๐ŸŒŸ The cookie dough consistency will be thick and a little sticky.ย 
๐ŸŒŸ Divide dough in half, shape them in discs, cover them with plastic wrap tightly. Wrap each up tightly and pat down to create a disc shape. Refrigerate cookie dough overnight.
๐ŸŒŸ Take chilled cookie dough out of the refrigerator, unwrap it and roll out disc between two layer of parchment paper until 1/4-inch thick. The first few rolls are always a little hard since the dough is cold and stiff, but it gets easier as you go.ย 
๐ŸŒŸ Cut into shapes and place them 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Re-roll dough scraps until all the dough is shaped.ย 
๐ŸŒŸ Refrigerate unbaked cookies for 20 minutes.
๐ŸŒŸ Bake on 350F (180C) for 10 minutes. Take cookies out of oven, allow them to cook on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooking rack.
๐ŸŒŸ Wait for the cookies to cool completely before you start decorating them.
