  • How do you make ginger bread cookies at home?

  • Place 1 portion of the dough on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle flour over dough and rolling pin. Roll dough to a scant 1/4-inch thick. Use additional flour to avoid sticking. Cut out cookies with desired cutter– the ginger bread man is our favorite of course.

  • Can I make gingerbread cookies the day before serving them?

  • Yes! Since this recipe makes soft gingerbread cookies, you can make them 1 to 2 days before you plan on serving them. Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature in the meantime.

  • What kind of molasses do you use for gingerbread cookies?

  • Homemade gingerbread cookie dough is actually very easy to make, and it requires minimal ingredients. This recipe calls for all-purpose flour, baking soda, unsalted butter, light brown sugar, an egg, and molasses. I recommend using an unsulphered molasses, and never blackstrap molasses.

  • What kind of cookies do you make for gingerbread men?

  • This molasses-dark, ginger-and-spice flavored cookie is perfect for gingerbread men. We roll it a bit thicker than usual, to give the cookies just a hint of chew.
