Gingerbread People

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I tried out this recipe yesterday to try and make ~big~ cookies for my daughter's J.K. class. For me, the recipe turned out a fairly crumbly cookie that could not be made large (they all fell apart). Also, I found that the cookies were too pale in color and didn't look very "ginger-bready" at all. I tried another batch using some brown sugar instead of all white sugar and those looked and held together a bit better. Still, I could not make them any bigger than about 4 inches (which, of course, not many people would want to do anyway). Overall, I'd have to say that I do not like the taste or mouth-feel of these cookies very much, but I appreciate the fact that this is one of the only recipes I could find that did not include molasses. I don't think many kids are big fans of molasses. So, I think they would like these.
