Every year we get together for a gingerbread house making party.  This year is no different and we've been baking up a storm to get the houses ready.  I thought i'd post our family recipe which I got from Grandma Stout years ago:

2/3 C. Molasses
1 Egg
1/2 C. Oil

Mix together and add 1/2 C. brown sugar

Then add:
1 tsp. Ginger
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/8 tsp. Ground cloves

Then add:

2 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder

Roll it out and bake at 350 degrees for 10 min., 
Cut out your pieces and bake another 15 minutes
Gently move the cut out pieces to wax paper (to cool)
