vegetable oil or melted shortening
In a large bowl with a fork, stir together sugar, oil, and molasses
until well combined.
Add 1 3/4 cups flour, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until mixture
is well combined. With hands, knead in as much of remaining flour to
make a stiff yet manageable dough.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Between pieces of waxed paper, roll out
dough 1/4-inch thick. Cut out cookies or gingerbread house pieces.
Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake 10 to
12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool several minutes on
baking sheets and then remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
