The Perfect Recipe for Gingerbread Goodness:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup molasses
- 1 tablespoon water
- Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and spices in a bowl.
- In another bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add egg, molasses, and water. Gradually add the dry ingredients.
- Divide the dough, wrap in plastic, and chill for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are slightly firm.
Pro Tips for Perfect Gingerbread:
- Chill the Dough: Resting the dough helps the flavors meld and prevents spreading while baking.
- Get Creative: Use different cookie cutter shapes for festive variety.
- Icing Fun: Decorate with royal icing for a delightful finish.
