This is a simple recipe for gingerbread "men". I got this from a friend a few years ago. This is the only gingerbread recipe I've found without molasses or corn syrup in it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift flour, soda, spices and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.
  3. Add egg and beat well.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing well.
  5. Chill.
  6. Roll out on a floured board, and cut with gingerbread men cookie cutter.
  7. Decorate with raisins, candied fruit or small candies.
  8. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 325°F, until browned (6-7 minutes).
  9. Decorate with icing after cooled.

This is awful, it didn't make gingerbread men like it says, it made a cake like mixture and it was no where near the consistency of dough.
