This recipe was really good. I rarely eat gingerbread but for some reason I was craving it. I thought it was going to be way harder than it was. As long as you're not expecting to be able to roll this dough out and make cookie cuter gingerbread men, then this is a great recipe. The few things I did different: I, like many other reviewers, added 1 TBSP orange juice instead of water. The recipe also says to roll the dough into balls, roll in sugar, an put on the cookie sheet. After reading some of the reviews and getting to that point myself, I concluded that that was not going to be possible without refrigerating the dough (which I really did not want to do as I hate waiting for it to chill). Instead, I sprayed two spoons with cooking oil lightly, coated in sugar, and then rolled the dough, drop cookie style. I then repeated this proceedure with a fork to allow me to flatted the cookies as if I were making peanut butter cookies. You can't see the marks like you would in a peanutbutter cookie and they tasted delicious, though they were a little flat (but this did not bother me).
