Sift together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt onto waxed paper. Beat together shortening, sugar and egg in a large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy, for about 3 minutes. Beat in the molasses and cider vinegar. Stir in flour mixture until blended and smooth. Gather dough into ball; wrap and chill for several hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough in half. Roll out half of the dough with lightly floured surface to generous 1/8-inch thickness. Keep remainder of dough refrigerated while working with first half. To use a bunny pattern, draw a pattern onto a piece of cardboard.

Make sure ears are attached to the head. Cut out pattern. Place pattern on dough and trace with a toothpick. Cut out cookies.

Place 1 inch apart on lightly greased baking sheets.Re-roll scraps, using up all the dough. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 5-7 minutes or until firm. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Use Decorator Icing to tint portions, if you wish. Decorate cookies as desired. Let cookies stand until icing is firm.

Store in airtight container between sheets of waxed paper for up to 2 weeks.
