*In one big bowl mix these dry ingredients in a sifter:
2 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp fine sea salt

*In another big bowl combine these wet ingredients:
1/2 C vegan butter or margarine (room temp)
1 C packed light brown sugar

*First microwave butter for 20 seconds!
*Mix Butter and brown sugar with a hand mixer until it is nice and fluffy (about 30 seconds)
*Then add:
1/4 C unsulphured molasses
1/4 C non-dairy milk (room temp) -(microwave milk for 10 seconds)
1 tsp vanilla extract

*Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and fold over with a spatula until combined and shaped into a ball (DO NOT USE YOUR HANDS- TRUST ME, NO NEED TO).

*Place dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour

*When one hour is almost up, preheat oven to 350 degrees

*Cut the ball of dough in half and work with one half at a time. Keep the other ball wrapped in plastic and in the fridge.

*GENEROUSLY flour your rolling surface with extra flour standing by for your rolling pin and cookie cutter.

*Roll out the dough until it’s approx. 1/8″ thick. Cut out your cookie shapes (dipping cookie cutters in flour if necessary)

*Place cookies on parchment lined baking sheets. Repeat process until there is no dough left.

*Bake the cookies for 6-8 mins in pre-heated oven (350F).

*Allow the cookies to cool completely before icing.

Recipe for icing:
3-5 ounces of aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas aka garbanzo beans)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (you can add more if you like it super sweet, but I wouldn’t use more than 3 cups)
1 TSP vanilla extract

*First mix 3-5 ounces of liquid from can of chickpeas with a hand mixer on low for 3 minutes

*Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract and mix on low for another 3 minutes

*And AGAIN mix for 3 minutes, but this time on a HIGH setting

* By now you should see your icing thick and foamy. Up to you if you want to add food coloring to your icing.
