I don't love gingerbread cookies generally (unless they're coated in icing), but I was looking for a good recipe to make some gingerbread boys with my toddler. I did not add any additional flour after refrigerating the dough and these cookies turned out very dark and spicy. They definitely don't look like your standard gingerbread cookies (my husband thought they were chocolate cookies when he first saw them.) They definitely stay soft after cooking, and they have a nice texture. If you like the gingerbread flavor and are looking for something spicier, than you'll probably really like this recipe. I liked them, when they were frosted, but I really prefer less of the spiciness (and I like the caramel color of regular gingerbread cookies), so I doubt I'll make these again.
