    all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    ground ginger
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    apple pie spice
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    ground cloves
  • 1/4  teaspoon

Directions
1.
In a medium bowl stir together flour, ginger, apple pie spice, cloves, cardamom, and cayenne pepper; set flour mixture aside.
2.
In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add molasses and brown sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in flour mixture until just combined. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
3.
On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough at a time until 1/16 inch thick. Using a floured 2-inch round scalloped cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4.
Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. Makes 66 cookies.
