I'm the Gingerbread Man~
I still remember that story from when I was a young child..Never trust a sly fox...:)
Yesterday my friend Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen
..shared her trusted Gingerbread recipe..I had a bit of time this morning before I left for the day and tried my hand at hers.
It's so easy and fun..
I made 5 little sets for our grandchildren Christmas Eve..I made only half the recipe and still have dough left over.
I recommend her tried and true recipe..
Here is the recipe she shared ..
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 1 cup butter or margarine
• 1/2 cup molasses
• 1 egg
• 1 Tablespoon vinegar
• 2 teaspoons cinnamon
• 1-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
• 3-1/2 (approx) cups flour
• 1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon salt
Heat over to 375 degrees when ready to start baking.
Cream sugar and butter until smooth. Add next 5 ingredients and mix until just blended. Add flour, soda and salt and mix until incorporated.
Pat dough into ball and put in plastic wrap or covered bowl in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to several days.
Roll out on floured surface to ¼" thickness and cut into desired shapes. Sprinkle with color sugar and add cinnamon decorations, if desired.
Bake in preheated oven for 7 to 8 minutes.
