How to Make Gingerbread Boys

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, and mix well. Mix in orange zest (if using), and corn syrup or molasses. Add, remaining ingredients, mixing, until well combined.
  2. Chill dough, several hours to overnight.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven, to 375°F. Grease cookie sheets. Let refrigerated dough, sit on counter for a few minutes; then, on a lightly floured surface, roll out 1/4 or 1/3 size clumps, after kneading it slightly. Keep the dough that isn't being used yet, in the refrigerator.
  4. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes, using cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart, on prepared cookie sheets.
  5. Bake cookie dough 10-12 minutes, until cookies are firm and lightly toasted on edges. Makes 5 dozen or 60 cookies.
