Last evening my son and I took out the gingerbread cookie dough from the refrigerator and baked these Gingerbread Men. After the cookies were cool, we iced them with left over butter cream icing.
The recipe for these cookies is below:
Gingerbread Cookies:1/2 cup non hydrogenated margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup molasses
2 tsps white vinegar
3 cups flour
1/2 tsps baking soda
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
2 tsp Gingerbread Spices
In a sauce pan mix together margarine, sugar molasses and vinegar. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Let cool and add egg. Add mixture to remaining ingredients. Wrap in roll and refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll out and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy!
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
