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!
they were wounderful.i cut the recipe in half and they turned out perfect
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.
these did not work very well for me, and I'm not quite sure why. I followed the recipe exactly, and after my dough had chilled for an hour it was still way too sticky and gooey to use my cookie cutters to cut out the gingerbread men. I ended up baking them like normal cookies, then cutting them out, but they still didn't look quite right. the taste was wonderful, though! I'll play around with the recipe and try putting the dough in the fridge overnight instead of an hour. thanks for sharing the recipe!
They are baking now and not only does the house smell fabulous, but they are the easiest dough to work with and the best tasting gingerbread men I've ever baked. Thanks so much for this great recipe!
These are really good and my kids liked them .Thanks for the recipe.
