    A wonderful gingerbread cookie without having to roll and cut out! Cooking time is per batch. These freeze very well. Thaw for one hour before serving. Recipe courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens.

      These turned out great. I opted to roll the dough out and use cookie-cutters, which turned out perfectly. I've never had a better batch of gingerbread cookies. Do not bake for more than 8 minutes, as they tend to brown quickly. The flour seems like too much when you're working it in, but do it in parts and the dough will turn out moist and delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Gingerbread is one of my favorites and I always like to try new recipes. These were very easy, with a nice soft texture and were quite tasty. I did add a little salt to bring out the spices more - I'd say 1/2-3/4 tsp total is good. I'm not a big fan of nuts so I replaced them with another 1/2 cup raisins. Mine were a little bigger than called for (I used a #60 scoop) which yielded 57 cookies which I baked for 9 minutes. Thanks for posting the recipe Marie!
