Melt shortening in a saucepan. Add sugar and molasses and mix well. Make sure the sugar is fully dissolved. Sift all the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and ginger together in a mixing bowl. Gradually stir 4 cups of the dry ingredients into the melted shortening mixture. Mix thoroughly. Then put this dough on your counter-top or pastry board. Mix in the remaining 1 cup of dry ingredients by hand. After it's thoroughly mixed, divide dough in to three equal parts and shape each part into a ball.
Put each ball onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Roll each dough ball into a rectangle 1/4" thick. After cutting the various parts, remove excess dough and bake right on these cookie sheets. Cut out dough. Leave window cut out in place.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 13-15 minutes or until lightly brown. As soon as you remove from oven, recut windows, after dough has cooled, remove the cut out.
