Molasses-Free Gingerbread

Recipe by Callu
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 30 cookies




  • Cream together softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until color gets light.
  • Beat in egg.
  • In a separate bowl blend together all dry ingredients including spices.
  • Blend into butter mixture until evenly mixed and ball of dough forms.
  • If you want to use cookie cutters- form dough into a ball and then flatten slightly, wrap and chill.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F once dough is chilled.
  • Roll chilled dough out onto very lightly floured surface until about 1/8 inch thick and cut into the shape you covet.
  • Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375°F for about 6-9 minutes. These cookies will spread a little so try to keep them at least 1/2 inch apart on the cookie sheet.
  • Cookies are done when just barely golden around the edges.
  • To keep them crisp cool them on a wire rack.
  • Once completely cool you can frost them or just eat them plain.
  • NOTE: If you are going the easy route you can also roll dough into a log, wrap and chill and then just slice into circles and bake instead of using cookie cutters.
