    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.

    Very good. Dough was easy to work with, which is good because I made them with my three year-old. Definitely a keeper.

    These were indeed quick AND easy. I tripled the batch and made a ton of tiny little hoiday gingerbread men (seriously, I think I got about 350 of them). I was a bit nervous after about breaking my arm mixing the batter because it was so super thick and sticky. After chilling, the dough was really easy to work with, though, and I cranked them out without incident. Very tasty. I finished by drizzling with some white, red and green icing. Thanks so much for posting.
