Gingerbread Cookies 101

If you've been searching for that perfect gingerbread cookie recipe, look no further!  KinderPrep has you covered!

First, mix together 3 cups of flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

And stir!

In a separate bowl, add 1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Mix together until creamy

Add 2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves (but smell it first because it smells so good)

And 5 twists of salt

Stir vigorously

Add one egg (with part of the shell falling in...then promptly remove the shell)

And one more egg, flawlessly cracking it

Stir in the flour mixture

Mix in 1/2 cup molasses

Make a big, floury mess and roll out the dough

Then, cut out gingerbread shapes

Arrange for cutesy photo op

And bake for 6-8 minutes at 350°

The next day, let the decorating begin!

Finally, enjoy!

But- wait!  There's more!  To house the gingerbread men, you need gingerbread cottages!

House Green

House Yellow

House Blue

and House Red.

Truly, it takes a village to raise a child.  Especially if it's a gingerbread village!

Have a very Merry Christmas, my KinderPrep Families!!!
