First off, I doubled the recipe and contrary to some posts had no problem mixing the dough. I will say that I always cream the butter/sugar extremely well in any recipe and find that key to good dough. Giving it a 5 star with making some changes always makes me feel guilty, however the only changes I made was to the spices. I added more ginger, cinnamon and added cloves, this is a matte of personal taste and shouldn't detract from a rating.
Now let me say...OMG!! This dough is marvelous, one of the smoothest and easiest I have ever experienced. I chose to do all Gingerbread men, half large and half small. They rose to perfection, though I will caution, really watch your baking times, I reduced mine significantly. I always bake for half the time and rotate pans as I don't have a convection oven. The first batch always tells the time tale....so be cautious. I always bake on parchment.
I adore these cookies, the taste is wonderful, and I adore working with the dough! You won't be sorry giving this a try.
I make traditional molasses Gingerbread men for my daughter using Splenda, and they come out great...but this is going to be my go to recipe for the little guys using sugar! Great Recipe Kim!
