Soft Ginger Cookies With Orange Glaze

1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark molasses
2 eggs
3 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves

2 cup plus 1 Tbsp confectioners sugar
1 Tbsp butter, softened
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tsp grated orange zest
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of salt

In a small bowl combine buttermilk and baking soda and set aside.
They will foam up. In a larger bowl combine oil, sugar, molasses
and eggs and beat until well mixed (about 1 minute). Add the
buttermilk mixture and blend. Sift together dry ingredients. Slowly
add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Let mixture stand 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons
onto oiled cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes until the top springs
back when touched with your finger. Do Not overbake. The cookies
should be quite soft.

While cookies are baking combine glaze ingredients. Remove cookies
to wax paper lined wire rack. Frost while warm with 1/2 tsp of
glaze for each cookie. Let cool completely. Transfer to trays and
place in freezer to completely set if neccesary or to freeze for
storage. Once frozen pack in tins in single layers seperated by
wax paper. These freeze well.
