In a bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon,
ginger, nutmeg and baking soda.
In another bowl, using an electric mixer, combine butter and brown sugar for about a minute, until the mixture is creamy.
Add molasses, vanilla and egg to the mixture and beat for two more minutes.
Gradually add the flour and spice mixture while stirring continuously. Towards the end, use a spoon to stir by hand.
Divide dough in half and form two flattened balls. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours.
Sprinkle flour on your work surface frequently to prevent the cookies
from sticking. 
Take one ball of dough out of the refrigerator and roll out with a rolling pin on a clean, floured surface. The thickness should be around 5 mm. Use cookie cutters to cut out beautiful shapes.
Do the same with the second ball of dough.

Icing for Cookies

Mix 1 egg white, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a blender. If the mixture is too dry, add a few drops of lemon juice, but be careful, if there's too much liquid, the icing will run off the cookies.
Place the icing in a pastry bag. Alternatively, take a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners to use as a pastry bag. Decorate the cookies.
If you want, you can separate your icing and color it different colors with food coloring.
I like to put a beard or a bow tie on my characters ... Sometimes, I even make mummies!
