Nice but needed more flavor. I added 2 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger root and felt could still use more bite or spice IMHO.
Can I replace the allspice with a bit of black pepper?
Tori, check your spices. Maybe they’re out of date. With all the flavorful ingredients in this cookie I’m not sure how they cold be flavorless and boring.
They have no flavour... very boring cookies
Great recipe. Better than the one I've been using for years! DON'T FORGET TO USE YOUR GINGERBREAD GIRL COOKIE CUTTERS< TOO...I call them "Spice girls"!
Anya, It would be best to use a genuine gingerbread house recipe. One that does not include eggs. Gingerbread houses are usually displayed for a while before eaten so you don't want anything that could be dangerous health wise sitting out. This is a great recipe for cookies.
they spread somewhat ... they flavor I hope ripens to give more snap ....
Just a quick question, could this recipe be used to make a gingerbread house?
This recipe is pretty much flawless. The balance of molasses and spices is just right. It's great for cut-out cookies because scraps can be re-rolled without coming out different.Roll 1/8 inch thick for crisp cookies, or 1/4 inch thick for chewy cookies.
