Old Fashioned Papparkakor

            Old Fashioned Papparkakor

3 ½ cups flour
1    tsp. soda
1½ tsp. ginger
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
¼ tsp. ground cardamon
½ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 unbeaten egg
¾ cup light molasses
 2  tsp. grated orange rind

Sift together dry ingredients, cream butter and sugar, add unbeaten egg and molasses and orange rind; beat well.  Stir in the dry ingredients gradually, mixing until blended.  Cover; chill overnight.  (Dough may be used in small amounts-will keep in refrigerator for one week.)  Roll out on well-floured surface, to 1/8” thickness.  Cut into shapes with cookie cutter.  (This is a good recipe for gingerbread men.)  Place on greased baking sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes at 375.
