    Callu's Note:

    This is a nice rolled spice cookie that has all the seasoning of gingerbread only without molasses. I rarely have molasses on hand and this makes cookies half way between a good sugar cookie and gingerbread. Light and crisp and they can be frosted or not. They also hold up well in a cookie tin. Yummy!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 30

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cream together softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until color gets light.
    2. 2
      Beat in egg.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl blend together all dry ingredients including spices.
    4. 4
      Blend into butter mixture until evenly mixed and ball of dough forms.
    5. 5
      If you want to use cookie cutters- form dough into a ball and then flatten slightly, wrap and chill.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 375°F once dough is chilled.
    7. 7
      Roll chilled dough out onto very lightly floured surface until about 1/8 inch thick and cut into the shape you covet.
    8. 8
      Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375°F for about 6-9 minutes. These cookies will spread a little so try to keep them at least 1/2 inch apart on the cookie sheet.
    9. 9
      Cookies are done when just barely golden around the edges.
    10. 10
      To keep them crisp cool them on a wire rack.
    11. 11
      Once completely cool you can frost them or just eat them plain.
    12. 12
      NOTE: If you are going the easy route you can also roll dough into a log, wrap and chill and then just slice into circles and bake instead of using cookie cutters.

      THIS IS THE BEST RECIPE EVER! LOOK NO FURTHER!!!! I have never made gingerbread cookies before, and this was SO easy and SOOOO DELICIOUS! I will be making them again in a couple of days and will be sure to take photos to upload! :) This is now on our list of holiday traditions!! Thank you so much for this recipe! Everyone LOVES these!!! I rolled them out and used a gingerbread man cookie cutter -- so cute! We frosted some, but they are SO ridiculously good they don't need it!!! Definitely our new favorite cookie!!!

      I've found that adding 2 TBSP of water to the mix before rolling into a ball makes it the perfect consistency! Delicious cookies!

      Mine crumbled, too. Perhaps adding a second egg might help?
