Homemade Gingerbread Men Cookies Recipe

No Christmas party would be complete without some Gingerbread men cookies!

  • SERVES: About 30 cookies
  • PREP: 45mins (include chilling)
  • BAKE: 20mins per batch (include cooling)

INGREDIENTS

  • ½  cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup molasses or honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 – 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon each ground cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the molasses/honey, egg and water. Combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until it’s easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion of dough to 3 or 4mm thickness. Cut with a 10cm cookie cutter. Place them about 3cm apart from each other on greased baking sheets. Reroll scraps and repeat step 2.
  3. Bake at 170 °C for 10-12 minutes or until edges are firm and light brown. Remove from oven to cool completely before decorating with icing as desired.

I added a few pieces of testers for each batch that I baked, to try out the taste.
