Gingerbread Cookies 101

How to make preschool gingerbread cookies:

In a large bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour

1 tsp of baking soda

3/4 tsp of cinnamon

3/4 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp allspice, and 1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp salt

and stir vigorously!

Add 1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup shortening

1/2 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup molasses 

1 egg

and mix!

Make a big, floury mess and roll out the dough

In fact, roll lots of times

Using a cookie cutter, cut out the cookie shapes

Bake at 350° for 8 minutes

Once cooled, frost and decorate generously.

Oh, and don't forget to lick!
