Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Cream butter, sugar, molasses, together and then add the eggs in a Cuisinart or in a bowl with a mixer. Separately, mix all dry ingredients, including spices, together. Then add to the egg and butter mixture to mix well.
Chill dough one hour if it is very soft. Roll out the dough in two batches on a clean counter, using flour to prevent sticking. Remember that the thickness of the cookies can be adjusted to your preference. For cake-like cookies, dough should be about 1/4'” thick. Dough should be rolled thinner for more crunchy cookies. Use a spatula to transfer cookies from the counter to the baking sheets, which can be lined with parchment paper for ease of removal.
Bake until slightly brown. Frost and decorate as you wish.
