In another bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy Lightly beat eggs and add to butter mixture. Add molasses and vinegar and beat well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture. Mix until a stiff dough forms. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place about 1 1/2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
