Who can resist a good gingerbread cookie. They are so yummy. These cookies can be ate as is or decorated with icings.

I include mine in a small basket along with a few cookie cutters and frosting tubes.

Or if they have small kids I include paper templets to create an easy gingerbread house along with all the trimmings and the story of Hansel and Gretal

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix 2 cups of the flour with the baking soda and baking powder. Mix the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour with the spices. In a one-quart, wide-mouth canning jar layer the ingredients starting with the flour baking powder mixture, then the brown sugar, and finally the flour and spice mixture.

    Gingerbread Cookies:

    Empty contents of jar into a large mixing bowl. Blend together well. Add 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine, 3/4 cup molasses and 1 slightly beaten egg. Mix until completely blended. Dough will be very stiff so you may need to use your hands. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

    Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Roll dough to 1/4-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter. Place cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Decorate as desired.
