Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
In the movie, Mandie and the Forgotten Christmas, Mandie and her friends make Gingerbread Cookies. The movie came with an activity guide that has the recipe Mandie used in the movie. Ever since I saw the movie, I’ve been wanting to make these cookies. But I just haven’t had time until last week. The cookies were really yummy, and my dad and I ate them up within the week. Lol. Here is the recipe.
Half a cup of butter
Half cup of sguar
Half cup of molassess
1 egg yolk
2 cups sifted flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp allspice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until smooth
Beat in molasses and egg yolk
In another bowl sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and spices.
Gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter egg mixture
Cover and chill dough for at least one hour (this makes the dough stiff and easier to work with)
On a lightly floured board roll the dough to a ¼ inch thickness
Cut into gingerbread men or other desired shapes
Place cookies about two inches apart on an ungreased sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until firm. Cool.
Makes three dozen cookies.
