Christmas Gingerbread

gingerbread

In a large bowl, cream together:

  • 1/2 C margarine or butter, softened
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1/2 C molasses
  • 1 egg yolk

Add

  • 2 C flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Stir until batter holds together. You may need to knead a bit with your hands. Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place on a pan and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Ice when cool using your favourite icing recipe (or you can use the leftover egg white + add 2 cups of icing sugar to make a quick icing).
