How to Make Ginger Bread Cookies (NO MOLASSES)


  • 1First put all the dry ingredients except sugar in to a bowl and sift. You will see here all my dry ingredients before I sift them.
  • 2Next start by creaming butter and dark brown sugar.
  • 3Keep mixer going and scraping sides down add the eggs one at a time until mixed well, then add the homemade molasses, start adding dry ingredients, add approximately 3 cups if possible and then remove from stand mixer and pour in rest of flour and try to stir somewhat.
  • 4Pour out on to your table and just kinda knead the dough till its completely mixed.
  • 5Try to roll your dough in to much better sized logs than I did lol and then put in the fridge till tomorrow.
  • 6Preheat the oven to 375 and begin slicing your logs of cookie dough.
  • 7Remember if you want to double these and you made big logs like I did, just cut your pieces in half like this.
  • 8You'll get lots of cookies and they make great gifts.
  • 9Bake for 8 or 9 minutes just depends on your oven and pans.
  • 10This makes a nice big batch of cookies, two gallon sized bags full.
  • 11Next the icing. Mix together the powder sugar and the milk until well incorporated, then add the corn syrup and extract mix well. If to thick add a little more corn syrup. Dip cookies until coated, you may need to use a small spatula or spoon to spread evenly. That's it Cookies Galore!!
