This is the ONLY recipe I use for my Christmas gingerbread because it's perfect every single time. I make this all year long too, because I crave gingerbread sometimes.

Very easy, thank you! My five year old decided that we needed to make gingerbread men today, and I was worried that it was going to be difficult. This dough handled very well. My son is thrilled. We'll definitely make again.
