1 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup Treacle
1 Tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
4 Cups Plain Flour
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and the ginger and mix well.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugar. Add the vinegar and the treacle. Then beat in the egg.
Add half the flour mix to butter and incorporate. Add the rest of the flour to form a soft dough. Refrigerate until cold.
When the dough has chilled, roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Press with cookie cutter and place cookies on a baking tray.
Bake for 5-7 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool completely before icing.
