Gingerbread Men!!! (Recipe)

Here are some of the not so very pretty gingerbread men me and my daughter made earlier. This was our very first attempt at making and trying these little guys. We enjoyed making them and tasting them. In case anyone wants to try making these, here is the recipe we used.

The recipes is as follows:

3 cups Flour                                                  
2 tsp Ginger (ground)                                   
1 tsp Cinnamon (ground)                              
1 tsp Baking Soda                                         
1/2 tsp Nutmeg                                              
1/4 tsp Cloves (ground)
1/4 tsp Salt
3/4 cup of Butter (softened)
3/4 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup unsulfured Molasses
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Mix the flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside.

1. In a large mixing bowl beat the brown sugar and butter until soft and fluffy, add the molasses, egg and vanilla extract, mix again and gradually start beating in the flour on a lower speed. Once you have done that get some cling film and lay it on your counter, enough so that you can lay the dough on it and flatten it out a little so that it's like a giant cookie, cover well and refrigerate for a few hours.

2. When you are ready to start making your cookies, Preheat the oven to 350°. Next you can start dusting your work surface with flour so your dough doesn't stick, roll it out and cut them out with a cookie cutter (you can dip the cookie cutter in flour so it doesn't stick). Place them 1 inch apart on some parchment paper. Bake them for 8 to 10 mins, you will know when the edges are set.

3. Cool them, decorate them and enjoy! 

Sorry I didn't take many pictures but I forgot to charge my camera today. :/ I will probably make more tomorrow and I will add some better looking pictures then. 

Shower & Bed time for momma, Good Night from us. :)
