I think I'm going to bake some gingerbread men next week. I made Gingerbread Caramels, which were awesome, and I have leftover mollasses to be used

Gingerbread is one of my favorite parts of the whole Christmas season. I love gingerbread--gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, and even gingersnaps! I go absolutely crazy with molasses and spices at this time of year.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen gingerbread men, or 1 1/2 men and a good-sized gingerbread house with a car and two trees, like I got.

I agree, cupcake345. Yum, I made a gingerbread house myself last Saturday with a peanutbutter gingerbread recipe and made some "men" too. Here is the recipe if anyone is interested. Very tasty. 5 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teas. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. ground ginger 1/4 tsp. salt 3/4 cup butter 3/4 cup peanutbutter 1 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup dark corn syrup 2 eggs Combine flour,cinnamon, baking soda, ginger and salt. In another large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until well blended. Add sugar, corn syrup, and egga; beat until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups of the dry ingredients. With a wooden spoon, mix in remaining dry ingredients, i cup at a time, umtil well blended. Divide dough into thirds. Wrap each portion and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour. Roll them out, use cutters or freestyle, place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 300 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until very lightly browned.

I mixed up my gingerbread cookie dough last night and it's chill in the fridge right now. I have a snowflake cookie cutter but I'm dreading rolling out the dough and icing the cookies. The last time I made royal icing it was a disaster. I'm kind pissed because Martha S's recipe for gingerbread said to use my mixer to mix the dough but it didn't say that it would darn near kill the motor in the process.But the upside is my apartment smells really yummy.

I don't think you need to buy a cutter - I think sometimes we get better results when we have to improvise. He's adorable.

Your adventures in Gingy Land made me giggle. I set out to make Xmas cookies last year and my experience was similar like my last minute discoveries ... lost rolling pin, no cutters, one cookie sheet. I had to laugh at my self.
