Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
These are great cookies! I made two variations of them - one exactly as directed above and one modified by suggestions by previous reviews. My modification substituted 3/4th brown sugar for the white sugar, I doubled all the spices listed EXCEPT for cloves, and I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne. Extra flour is NOT necessary - just separate into 3 sections and let the dough chill. I like spicy and found it in my modified version. In my option, the as-advertised version were quite mild. I chilled my dough for 3 hours and it worked great rolling with flour. I rolled my dough to 1/4th inch using my rubber rolling pin guides/spacers which you can find online if you're interested. I used a 3x2-1/2 inch gingerbread man cookie cutter and I got 25 cookies out of the as-directed batch and 30 out of the modified batch. I used the recipe for holiday cooking and would probably triple my modified recipe if done again. I baked mine for 8 minutes - took them out and immediately scooped them onto cooling racks - they turned out chewy and delicious. Resist the urge to over-bake or add flour! Royal icing is my suggestion for decoration.
