Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I just made these to give away as Christmas gifts and they turned out really well. ^^ I cooked them exactly according to the directions except I made a double batch, one with honey instead of molasses and one with blackstrap molasses instead of milder molasses. I made maybe 12-14 cookies in total from each batch (I made them really thick) and baked them for about 8 minutes. They just came out of the oven a half hour ago and are still soft, but I can't judge their fully cooled softness. I will mention one thing though: the dough is pretty dry. When rolling out I recommend adding a slight bit of water to the dough. Also, give a good few hours for the dough to soften to roll out after refrigerating it. My honey one softened fairly quickly, but the molasses took about three hours to soften enough to roll. >
