Foodie Friday and Gingerbread Man Project #2

The Gingerbread Man Project turned out much better this year.  We did have one munchkin nibble on the decorations the entire process, but the supply was rather large.  I accounted for the snacking during the festivities, which helped.  If you compare the results from last year and this year, I think you’ll agree they turned out better this year.  Thank you for a much better tasting cookie and thank you old fashioned royal icing for tasting so delicious.

What You Will Need and You Already Have:

2 egg whites

3 C confectioner’s sugar

¼ tsp cream of tartar

¾ C brown sugar

3 C flour

1 ½ tsp baking soda

1 ½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1 T ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cloves

¾ C molasses

¾ stick of butter, softened

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

Large bowl

Medium bowl


Cookie sheets

Parchment paper

Plastic wrap

1)      Preheat oven to 375˚.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2)      Sift together flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

3)      Beat together 1 egg, sugar, butter and vanilla.  Mix in flour mixture.

4)      Form to balls with dough and wrap with plastic wrap.  Chill in fridge for 2 hours.

5)      Roll out dough and cut out shapes with cookie cutters.

6)      Bake for 10-12 minutes.

7)      Cool.

8)      Prepare icing.  Beat egg whites until peaks form in whites.  Add cream of tartar and 3 C powdered sugar.

9)      Decorate cookies.

10)   Serve.
