I have no idea what Molasses is (is that even available in Germany?) and so I used syrup. And I think the next time I'll use less flour, because in my opinion the dough was a little bit dry. Because I was too lazy to use cookie cutters, I just cut the dough in rhombs with a knife - that worked just fine for me. 7 minutes at 175°C in a fan-oven - and I had the most wonderful gingerbread cookies :)

Very good! My first time making gingerbread cookies and I had no trouble with sticking. I like a softer cookie so I cooked them for the least amount of time. I need to watch my oven though, it doesn't hold a steady temp so I ended up with a few crispy men. This is the only gingerbread recipe I will be using.

Super recipe, so easy to make and delicious. Needed a quick gift for secret santa at work, and these did the trick perfectly. Will make time and time again. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Unfortunately, this recipe did not work for me. By the time I mixed all together it was so dry, then when I rolled it out, it had too much gluten, . Also, flavour was okay. I have no idea what I did wrong, but I tried twice to see if I was doing anything wrong.
Both time, failed. I used metric system and wondering if there's something wrong with metric caliculations.

These cookies were great! The recipe withstood the help if my 2 & 4 year old. We didn't wait the full 2 hours, we kept them thick & baked them 6 minutes. They were perfect. They wereild enough the kids gobbled them up but tasty enough I enjoyed them too.

Excellent!! I made a single then a double batch for my kids cookie party. The kids had a blast. The dough rolled nicely and baked up great. ITs pretty forgiving for a bunch of 5 and 7 year olds who don't roll consistant. We decorated with royal icing and candies. The kids had a blast.

These were good and tasted really nice. I think an all around good recipe. I did however find the dough a little sticky and didn't like how some of the cookies cracked during baking. I was also a little disappointed by rolling out the dough to a scant 1/4". I thought they were to thin and delicate and much prefer a thicker, softer cookie. I'm glad I made these and people loved them, thanks for posting.

this was the easiest gingerbread dough I've ever worked with--and tastes great, too! I actually took one batch to an orphanage here in Mongolia to help the kids with Christmas cookie baking; and it was dream to work with
