  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
  2. Stir together flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer about 30 seconds; add brown sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add molasses and vanilla to the butter mixture and beat on low until combined. To this, add the eggs, orange and lemon zest, beating on low to mix.
  5. Add flour mixture; stir with a spoon until combined.
  6. Divide dough into 4 portions; wrap each and chill about 1 hour.
  7. Grease cookie sheet. Roll out one portion of dough on a lightly floured surface approximately 1/4 thick. Best if not rolled thicker. (Tip: To keep things clean, roll the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap. Use immediately, refrigerate or place in freezer for future use. If frozen, defrost overnight in refrigerator. Keep refrigerated until ready to cut).
  8. Cut cookies to desired shapes and arrange 1 1/2 apart on a cookie sheet.
  9. Bake about 7 - 10 minutes or until edges are firm and light brown. Transfer to wire rack.
