    Chickee's Note:

    This is a very easy dough to work with and really great to make shapes or even a house. I made a house with a very basic plan that I scribbled on some paper and it was terrific! From Good Taste magazine December 2007. Similar to Lebkuchen.

      Enjoyed making this (recollections of youth!) ~ It was more like playtime than work! I used dark molasses in place of the treacle (a no-brainer there!) & everything came together nicely for the making of gingerbread stars & moons! Thanks for sharing your tasty gingerbread!
