Gingerbread Man Cookies

It’s Christmas season. I found this great gingerbread man cookie recipe on YouTube.


3 cups flour

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Mix all these dry ingredients in a large bowl.

1. Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1/2 cup sugar till light and creamy.

2. Beat in one large egg.

3. Add in 2/3 cup molasses ( light molasses is used in the video, but I used dark molasses).

4. Add dry ingredients mixture into molasses mixture 1/3 at a time.

5. Chill the dough in the fridge at least 2 hours till it gets firm. ( I put in the fridge for overnight).

6. Roll dough into thin large piece. Use a cutter to cut into gingerbread man shape.

7. Preheat oven to 180 degree C and bake for 8-12 mins.

Decorate with icing.

There will be a Christmas fair at the church. So I baked around 200 cookies.
