Description

Great gingerbread recipe for cookies or for gingerbread houses! Decorate cookies with royal icing or melted chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Cinammon
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Molasses
  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preparation

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix butter and brown sugar on medium speed until fluffy.

2. Mix in spices first, then eggs and molasses.

3. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder and add to bowl; mix until just combined.

4. Wrap dough in a disc shape in plastic wrap. Let it rest by refrigerating until cold, about 1 hour.

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface or between two sheets of parchment paper to about 1/4-inch thick.

6. Cut shapes out with cookie cutters and place them approximately 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

7. Refrigerate until firm; at least 15 minutes to 1 hour.

8. Bake cookies until crisp; 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks.
