“Can we eat them yet?” is the first question you’ll hear every time you bake these spicy gingerbread cookies.

1
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup shortening
1 1/2
cups dark molasses

Easy Creamy Frosting

4

About 5 tablespoons half-and-half

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, stir together brown sugar, shortening, molasses and water. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet. On floured surface, roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut with floured gingerbread cutter or other favorite shaped cutter. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
