Recipe by cheesygiraffe

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.

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.
