Found this easy recipe on a bag of Domino Sugar and just in time for Christmas. This is a great way to spend time with the little ones, making (and eating) gingerbread men!

How to Make FAST TRACK GINGERBREAD COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and butter with an electric mixer. Add molasses. Then add eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides of bowl with each addition.
  2. In a second large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to the brown sugar mixture by hand until a thick dough forms. Divide the dough into four parts, wrapping each with plastic wrap.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out one portion of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out shapes and place on a baking sheet 1-inch apart. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely before removing cookies from pan. Decorate as desired.
  4. NOTE: Dough can be frozen up to 3 months.
