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!
Cream together butter and sugar.
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.
Place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes. Check often- take out when cookies have risen and are easily removed from sheet.
Frost as desired. I used Royal Icing. If you want instructions and techniques for Royal Icing, visit my website: www.easybaked.net.
