    Directions

    1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in molasses and egg yolk until combined. Beat in as much flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour using a wooden spoon. Divide dough into quarters. Cover and chill dough for 3 hours or until easy to handle.

    2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time to ¼-inch thick. Using a 2- or 3-1/2-inch star cutter, cut out shapes. Place one-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet.

    3. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and cool. If desired, decorate cookies with Royal Icing.
