This is one of my favorites. I recommend erring a little on the light side with the molasses, can be very sticky otherwise, hard to manage when you roll it out. Also I double the ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon but my family loves a truly spicy dish, for a milder palette you can make as directed.

Um….betty crocker gingerbread mix? Lol. At least we have cute cookie cutters and dress them up with red shimmer icing 😉

@MsGinkgo:  parchement paper – it’s the key to anything that would usually be a sticky mess and requires rolling out. Just drop it onto a big square of parchment paper, in one large ball and you can use the paper to smoosh it into the desired thickness with a minimum of fuss.

After that I usually freeze my cookie dough flat like that for an hour or two so it’s semi solid before I take the cuters (or when I’m really lazy a sharp knife) to it.

Easy 😀

I used to avoid anything that wasn’t a drop cookie too till I learned the parchment paper trick. Now it’s a staple in my kitchen! Also helps with biscotti (keeps my hands nice and clean while I form it into a loaf).

@MsGinkgo:  No problem. I’m an adventurous, if thrifty, cook. So it took me a while to justify the expense of the buying the paper to experiment with, now it’s an absolute staple in my kitchen that’s definitely worth every penny!
