    Delicious and pretty easy recipe. A teeny bit too much molasses taste, but other than that really amazing. I cooked them for about 15 minutes and got them nice and crunchy, with a little bit of chewiness.
    👍🏻 great! .................

    Perfect tasting gingerbread cookies

    Wow! These are the best gingerbread men I've ever had. The balance and blend of ingredients is perfect. I was looking for a great recipe to use for my first gingerbread men baking experience, and I found the right one. It has all of the right ingredients. I'm so glad they came out so well. I can't wait to let people try them! For the icing, I used a more basic recipe with what I had in the kitchen and it came out great. I recommend using a 5 in. gingerbread man cookie cutter. This recipe is a keeper and will be the beginning of a new Christmas tradition!
