A good dough to work with; I recommend adding the egg to the first bowl rather than in with the dry ingredients, and baking at 350F. They puff up nicely! I added 1 tsp dried orange peel into the first bowl ingredients. The yield is generous, as I made a tree using my star cookie cutters in sizes large to small, as well as over a dozen more average sized cookies. Icing is the basic icing sugar (1 1/4 cups), lemon juice (2 tbsp) and vanilla extract (1/2 tsp) recipe, with a tbsp of water added if too thick. Thanks for your posting.

I would call these Winter Solstice cookies because they are deep and dark like the longest night! I substituted brown rice syrup for the brown sugar and omitted the egg and added about 1/2 cup flour. I used 1/2 spelt and 1/2 brown rice flour. Also I used coconut oil. I baked at 350 for 5 minutes. These were delicious. Thanks.

These are very good gingerbread cookies. I used unsulfured molasses in this recipe. After I mixed the ingredients together in the first bowl, I then added the egg, and blended the ingredients well. Then after I mixed the flour, baking soda and powder together in the second bowl, I GRADUALLY added it to the first bowl. I used 4-inch gingerbread men cookie cutters for this recipe, and baked them on my Pampered Chef Stoneware for exactly 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. I then let the cookies set on the baking stones for a couple minutes before I removed them. If using the 4-inch gingerbread men cookie cutters for this recipe, you will get 3 dozen Gingerbread Cookies. Thank you Chef#180236 for the recipe. I loved these cookies!!
