Sabrina's Gingerbread People

1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup unsulphured molasses
2 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup unsalted butter
3 T white distilled vinegar
6 cups flour
2 T ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparing the gingerbread people:
Place butter, sugar, vinegar and molasses into a pot and bring to a boil. Let cool.

When cool, add eggs and flour with all other spices. Mix well, dough will be stiff, and then set in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Roll into 1/4-inch thickness and cut into shapes; don't forget to poke a small hole at the top (with a bamboo skewer or chopstick or shish-kabob skewer) if you're planning on displaying ing the gingerbread people on a Christmas tree. and bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.

When the cookies are cool, decorate with icing, candies, sanding sugars, etc.
