      Yum! Learn how to make your own soft chewy gingerbread cookies! This scrumptious recipe is a family favorite in our home. We thought, in the spirit of the holiday season, we'd share it with you!

      You'll Need:
      • 1 c. brown sugar, packed
      • 1/3 c. shortening
      • 1 1/2 c. dark molasses
      • 2/3 c. cold water
      • 7 c. all purpose flour
      • 2 tsp. baking Soda
      • 2 tsp. ground ginger
      • 1/2 tsp salt
      • 1 tsp ground allspice
      • 1 tsp ground cloves
      • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


      In a large bowl combine the first 4 ingredients, mixing well. Add remaining ingredients, stirring well. Dough will be quite heavy. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

      Divide dough into 1/4's, roll each quarter section out on a floured surface. Rolled dough should be about 1/4" thick.
      Carefully place each section on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F

      While it's baking, mix up the frosting!

      Remove from Oven, Cool on cooling rack, frost as desired.

      To make it a little heavier nd positionable, I stuff mine with rice and follow all the same directions.
