Gingerbread Men Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Dine Dish

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!
