what you need
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2-1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • 1-2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
make it
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg; mix well. Beat in molasses. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger; add to creamed mixture and mix well. (The dough will be very stiff.) Cover and chill several hours or overnight.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness; cut into 2-1/4 inch to 2-1/2 inch circles. Place 1/2 tsp. preserves on half of the circles; top with remaining circles. Pinch edges together to seal. Place on greased baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients and frost cooled cookies.
