Try these cookies with the prescribed amount of ginger
, but if it is too much for you, eat them with milk
and use less ginger
next time. These are a fun holiday
treat to decorate and share with others!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mix all ingredients together except flour. Add flour slowly, mixing. Dough should be slightly stiff. If mix seems too dry, add a teaspoon or two of water; if too wet, add flour. Roll dough on floured cutting board to be about ¼-inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to make men. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Transfer to wax paper to cool. Give features with frosting!
