    Dine & Dish's Note:

    I have never really liked Gingerbread cookies until I found this recipe. It has a mild flavor, thanks to the fact that the recipe doesn't call for Molasses. This recipe was adapted from the Whistlestop Cafe. They make soft on the inside, slightly crispy on the outside cookies

      This is a great recipe for kids! I made it for my daughter's class at school. The kids loved eating them. We dressed them up with a little royal icing and M&Ms. It was fun, and they were so cute!

      We made these with my Girl Scout troop over the holidays. You can make the dough and refrigerate it before use and it's fine. We decorated with different colored icings in easy flow cans (like cheese wiz). They came out great and I don't even like gingerbread. You can also put a hole in the top before baking and make ornaments.
