Delicious little gingerbread men perfect for Christmas decorating with kids!
"I followed the recipe except for boiling the molasses and the cookies came out fine. I was also in a hurry and didn't chill dough. Still worked great and tasted great too!"
Cream together margarine and sugar thoroughly. Heat molasses to almost boiling and pour over margarine mixture. Mix in vinegar. Cool to lukewarm. Add egg.
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger. Add to cooled molasses mixture, stir together well to form dough. Chill dough overnight.
Preheat oven to 350. Roll out dough to about -inch thickness and cut into desired shapes. Decorate as desired. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not over-bake.
If you don't have a gingerbread man cookie cutter, draw a pattern on paper and lay on top of the dough. Cut around the pattern with a sharp knife.

angrose 3y agoThese turned out great. They puffed up more than I thought they would so be sure to space them enough!
