1 cup light molasses
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
5-1/2 cups flour, approximately

1 envelope Knox unflavored gelatin
1 cup warm water
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups powdered sugar

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 6–8 minutes at 375 degrees. For icing, dissolve gelatin in warm water; add sugar. Bring to a rolling boil; turn down heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Put powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl. Pour syrup over powdered sugar and beat with an electric beater for about 10 minutes. Add a little salt and almond extract. Spread on cookies.
