Followed directions as written except I used butter instead of shortening and doubled the spices and added some nutmeg and cloves. I took the advice of many on here and rolled it between parchment paper, but still had trouble keeping the cut out shapes intact. My husband happened to walk by and suggested that i roll the dough in batches, keeping the rest in the fridge, and then take the rolled piece and put back in the fridge for a few minutes. It worked like a charm! I was able to cut and place on a "pam" sprayed cookie sheet without any trouble at all. The cookies are the perfect texture and yummy, though I taste more molasses than spice, even though I increased the spices. Next time I will increase the spices more, but otherwise, it's a keeper!
