These gingerbread men and women can be hung on the Christmas tree, if you can resist eating them.


        1 c. butter; 2 c. sugar

        ½ c. molasses; 2 eggs

        3 tbsp. vinegar; 4½ c. flour

        3 tsp. baking soda; 1 tsp. baking powder

        ½ tsp. white pepper; 1 tsp. ginger

        1 tsp. cinnamon.


Step 1:
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Step 2:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 3:
Add molasses, eggs, and vinegar and mix well.

Step 4:
In a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda, baking powder, white pepper, ginger, and cinnamon.

Step 5:
Add flour mixture to the butter and sugar, stirring until well mixed.

Step 6:
Turn dough onto a well-floured board. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out dough thinly. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. (If you don’t have cookie cutters, you can use a glass to make circles.) Using a spatula, transfer cookies to ungreased cookie sheets.

Step 7:
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until puffy and lightly browned. (Repeat with remaining cookies.)
