This is REALLY a good recipe for gingerbread cookies. Nice and soft.

  • Ad

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 3/4 cup flour


Cream first 4 ingredients. Add hot water and soda. Stir in next four ingredients and add flour. Roll out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch, cut into shapes and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. These are perfect for gingerbread men that can be iced and decorated.
