These soft gingerbread cookies are easy to cut into any shape and so yummy!
These cookies are a family recipe from my grandmother. She made them for Christmas for years and they are a family favorite. These are soft and cake-like cookies. Top them with any icing and they are a perfect treat all year round!

  • Step 1

    Cream together butter and sugar.

  • Step 2

    Beat in egg, molasses and vinegar.

    Blend in sifted dry ingredients.

    Chill 2-3 hours (this is important– the dough is very easy to roll after chilling)

    Roll 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick on a floured counter or board and cut into shapes.
