Gingerbread Men

1/2 cup butter softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup dark molasses
1 large egg
2-2/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. In mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add egg and molasses. In separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Gradually stir dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Turn dough out onto well-floured board and roll out to 1/8" thickness. Cut out lots of gingerbread babies and bake on well-greased cookie sheet for 9-10 minutes. Makes 18 large gingerbread men or 50 babies.
