In a saucepan, bring the butter and molasses to boil. Let it cool to room temperature and transfer to a mixer. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Stir flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl. Add 2 cups of flour to the molasses mixture and mix. Add egg, egg yolk, and remaining flour into the mixture and mix. Add 1 cup of water and mix until dough ball forms. The dough should be sticky. Add water in small amounts (1/4cup-1 cup) if needed. Roll out dough to ¼’’ thick and cut out the walls, roof, and door for your dog house. Bake in a non-stick tray at 325 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
