  1. Cream together butter and sugar. I used the paddle attachment of a kitchen aid on medium speed. Add in eggs one at a time. Add molasses until incorporated. Add vanilla.Sift together cake flour and remaining dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients a cup at a time to the creamed sugar/butter mixture until fully incorporated.Wrap into three discs in plastic.
  2. Chill for at least one hour.
  3. Take each disc out one at a time. Roll to ¼” and cut with gingerbread cookie cutter.
  4. Bake at 350 for 11 minutes. Allow to cool.
  5. To add chocolate drizzle, melt chocolate in microwave at power 5 and check every 60 seconds, stirring to just melted enough to be able to drizzle, using a fork.
