Really like the orange zest, subtle and special! I found that if the dough was rolled to 1/4", I got the aforementioned puffy and delightfully chewy gingerbread boys. We love cookies moist, so hooray for that! Then I experimented and rolled the dough thinner, to about 1/8". These cutouts stayed more true to size, and produced a crispy cookie, suitable for hanging (remember to poke out a hole w/ a straw before baking). Other notes: paddle attachment on the Kitchen Aid had no problem mixing everything together. After only 6 hours chilling in a bowl covered tight with plastic wrap, the dough was rather stiff coming out of the fridge, but that was solved by breaking off chunks, then kneading till pliable. My first time rolling dough between wax paper... how smart is that (thanks SUGARPLUMSCOOKIES)! The fourth reroll is good as the first! Our family doesn't care for icing, but melted white chocolate pipes well for decorating! MMMmmmm... Enjoy!
