    1 Egg
    1/4 cup Molasses

    1 teaspoon freshly grated Cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground Ginger
    1/2 teaspoon Ground Cloves

    On a floured work surface using a floured rolling pin, roll dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. Use a 1-inch cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet, two inches apart. Bake for 10 to12 minutes or until almost crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

    Spread a teaspoon of filling onto half of the cookies and place a second cookie on top to sandwich. Chill 30 minutes before serving.

    1/2 cup Butter
    1 cup Confectioner's Sugar
    1 Lemon (zest)
    pinch Salt
    For the Filling: Beat together the butter, sugar and salt until fluffy. Add the zest and beat until evenly distributed.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Add cardamom to these cookies for additional flavor.
    2. If you don’t have a piping bag, put the filling in a plastic bag, and cut a corner to dispense.
