Lia and I made gingerbread men yesterday. We enjoyed them with hot chocolate when Dean and Tristan came in from hunting.
Lia rolled and cut out her own cookies. She was convinced the dough was play dough...she rolled some into a ball and threw it. It landed on the fan much to her dismay.
Gingerbread Men Cookies
1/2 cup of butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
2 Tablespoons water
2 2/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon each: cinnamon, allspice & nutmeg
Mix butter and brown sugar. Add the molasses, egg and water. Combine remaining ingredients and add to first mixture. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until dough is workable.
Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Place 2 inches apart on a buttered baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
