Gingerbread Men

¼ cup butter
½ cup Sucanat
½ cup dark molasses
3 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp cloves
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
½ tsp salt
¼ cup water

Blend the butter and Sucanat until creamy. Sucanat does not cream up like sugar would so it will look like creamy butter with bits of Sucanat blended in. Beat in molasses. In a small bowl mix flour, soda, spices and salt. Add this alternately with the water to the butter mixture. Roll the dough and cut with gingerbread men and women cutters (or any cutters you desire!). This dough can also be used in making gingerbread houses (sorry don’t have a pattern for you! :) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8 minutes.
