I don't care for these much at all. My husband and kids, however, LOVE them. We visit Nauvoo often since we live close and they always have to stop at the historic bakery where they serve these. Unfortunately, when we remodeled our kitchen this summer the recipe was lost. Nice and easy to work with. I also bake on wax paper or silpat-too forgetful to ever buy parchment paper. lol Otherwise, it's next to impossible to get whole gingerbread off the pans. I also use Crisco instead of lard because I think lard's nasty. I like spicier cookies so I usually make 2 batches and double the spices in one. Last year we made ornaments out of them by adding a whole jar of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger from Dollar General. We poked holes in the tops before we baked them and the kids threaded them with ribbons. They still smell great this year. :)
