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

Ingredients

Cookies

1
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup shortening
1 1/2
cups dark molasses
2/3
cup cold water
7
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons baking soda
2
teaspoons ground ginger
1
teaspoon ground allspice
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon ground cloves
1/2
teaspoon salt

Easy Creamy Frosting

4
cups powdered sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
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.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched (for a softer, chewier cookie, bake 8 to 10 minutes). Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4 In large bowl, stir together all frosting ingredients until smooth and spreadable. Decorate cookies with frosting.
Tips  

Expert Tips

Using a tub of Betty Crocker® ready-to-spread frosting instead of making the frosting can save you a few precious moments during the busy holiday season.

Store unbaked cookie dough tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
