Easy Gingerbread Men Cookies Recipe

My mother started a new tradition this year where the grandkids spend a day with her decorating cookies and making Christmas ornaments. She even sews their very own Christmas aprons for the occasion.

They make cookies and popsicle stick ornaments to hang on their very own tree! And, of course, they get to snack on their ornaments all day long as well. It made for an exhausting day for Bobcha (Polish for Grandma) and the kids, but it was a very special and exciting day that the kids and Bobbie will look forward to every year. 

Gingerbread Men

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup molasses

Mix melted butter and sugar together. Add egg and molasses. Mix dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture. Divide and refrigerate 2 hours. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes.

  1. I do this with my granddaughter as well. We both look forward to it every year. I hope she will fondly remember the times we have spent together through the years, long after I'm gone.
