Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
love love love, EXCEPT more sugar less cloves and just a smidge more flour, everyone else from what i can tell if putting in way too much extra, make as is then just use extra flour when shaping and knead it in. coat cookies in a very thin layer of flour and DO NOT use non stick spray, thats what makes them rise, so if you want perfect little men then ditch the pam. plus i'm not big on frosting on gingerbread so instead i like to brush melted butter on top and sprinkle with sugar. the cloves needs to be cut in half and i used brown sugar and corn syrup in place of molasses and even though i had a little extra sugar, not nearly sweet enough. aside from the cloves all the spices are perfect. all in all, good recipe
