      Never made gingerbread cookies before so I tried it. I didn't have stick margerine and subbed butter instead. Also no lemon juice so I left that out. The dough was very sticky and would have taken a LOT of flour to be rollable. So I don't know if this was my fault or not. It was late when I got around to the rolling part and gave up. I used my hands to form into small balls and flattened with a fork. They tasted good, kids didn't like them but they are picky. I really liked dipped in applesauce. Good recipe.

      BTC thanks for a great introduction to gingerbread! As a first-time gingerbreader I found your recipe easy to follow and was very happy with the results. The only change I made was to use 100% vegan stick margarine which is free from trans fats. The cookies I made were quite small (I got about 50 of them), so each batch took 5 minutes. After cooling they were soft and sweet and gingery. Yum!

      The cookies turned out to be very nice and tender, unlike many gingerbread cookies which are very hard. Although this made it a better tasting cookie it they ended up being a little too fragile and we ended up with a few with broken legs and heads which we gladly ate :).
