    Make your own Gingerdead Men- hey you don’t have to wait until Christmas to enjoy a gingerdead man!

    • 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.

    roll the dough out on a floured surface.

    Rolled dough should be about 1/4″ thick. Cut with gingerbread men cookie cutters.

    Thanks for sharing these Deweese, they are incredibly cute and perfect to add to our Halloween Party Eats List for this years bash. We’re also making rice krispie treat squares, then dipping the top 1/4 into colored chocolate and adding monster eyes to make little monsters.
