      2/3  cup           Butter or margarine -- soften
      1/4  cup           Orange juice
      1/2  cup           Dark corn syrup
      1/2  cup           Dark molasses
    4 1/2  cups          All-purpose flour
      3/4  cup           Whole wheat flour
    2      teaspoons     Ground ginger
    1      teaspoon      Baking soda

      1/2  teaspoon      Ground cloves

 In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter. Blend in orange juice, corn syrup and

Add to creamed mixture; mix well.  Chill 3-4 hours or overnight. Roll a portion
of the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired
shapes. Place 2-inches apart on greased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining
