Gingerbread recipe ingredients

To make easy gingerbread cookies, you will need 1 cup of all purpose flour; one teaspoons each of ground spices, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and salt; 1 teaspoon baking soda, 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, room temperature mixed vegetables; A cup of light brown sugar and 2/3 cup of unsealed molasses, 1 large egg and a little royal glaze.

How to make gingerbread cookies

Sift the spices, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper and salt together with the flour. In a bowl, beat the vegetable cream and butter on high speed for 1 minute, add the brown sugar and beat again for another 2 minutes. Add the eggs and molasses with a wooden spoon, then mix the flour with the remaining spices in small amounts. Keep stirring until a solid dough forms.

This dough should be divided into two parts each in separate plastic wrap (you can make it two days ahead) and refrigerated for at least 3 hours. When done, take a pack and bring it to room temperature before rolling out on a floured surface.

 Sprinkle the dough with flour and roll out to the desired thickness. When rolled, the dough should not stick to the board. Use different molds for the gingerbread cookies and make shapes your kids will love. Transfer to a non-stick pan and bake, turning the pan from bottom to top, about 10 to 12 minutes. Once cool, decorate with royal icing.
