Winner! These were very easy to make. We did a total of 10 dozen. Next year we will do twice that amount because they were very popular. We decorated using http://www.recipezaar.com/Royal-Icing-19250 and package 2 per package in clear celophane Christmas bags with a tie. Very pretty and received rave reviews. Thanks for posting.
This is a def. keeper! Everyone loved them! dough was very easy to work with. I baked mine for 7 min. everyone in my house likes a softer cookie. Yum!
Wow! these were delicious and whether chilled or room temp they always come out delicious. These r def a keeper for me :)
I just made these cookies & everybody in the household loved it. It was great! the taste, smell, ... so neat & yummy.. and I am not a pro, this is the second time I am making cookies. :) Thank you!
These cookies are amazing. They're not overly sweet but have a wonderful spice to them. My 5 year old thinks they're a little spicy, but my 2 year old devours them. I'm taking a plate of them to my parents house tonight so we'll see if they're a hit. :)
These turned out so nice - and actually gingery instead of overpoweringly clove! The lemon zest really makes these lovely. I had a problem with it being crumbly, but I used flax and water instead of an egg, and I may have used too little water. I found it rolled together perfectly if I put a piece of parchment on top of it first - nice and smooth, no sticking!
Well, I'm embarrassed. I'm a new baker, and everyone seemed to have no trouble with the recipe. My dough was very dry and crumbly, so I added a little bit of milk and made it too sticky! When adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, I used a hand mixer. Was that the trouble? Should I have stirred them in by hand?
These turned out perfect tasting and looking gingerbread men. Thanks for such a great recipe. This ones a keeper for me.
WoW factor! I had the children help me with making these wonderful cookies. The aroma is just so Christmas! Thank you
I made these 1/4 thick or just little taller and baked them for 9 minutes and they came out perfectly soft, but cooked through. This was my first attempt at homemade gingerbread cookies and they are now my favorite Christmas cookie. Excellent recipe; thanks for posting!
