Cream the butter, molasses, and sugar with hand beaters.
Add the egg and beat through.
Add the rest of the ingredients and combine – I start out with a spatula and finish it off with hand beaters to really get it all combined well.
Let the dough chill for an hour in the fridge – I split the dough up into 2 disks so it chills faster.
Knead the dough with your warm hands to make it pliable, roll out onto a rice floured surface, cut out your shapes, and place the shapes onto a silpat lined or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
