Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes / Yields: About 8 dozen cookies

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients, except sugar; set aside.


Step 3

Combine sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer; add molasses. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides with each addition.


Step 4

Add dry ingredients slowly to the sugar mixture, until a thick dough forms. Divide dough into four parts, wrapping each with plastic wrap.


Step 5

On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and place on a baking sheet, 1 inch apart.


Step 6

Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely before removing cookies from pan. Repeat for the rest of the dough.

Prepare the Royal Icing recipe and use to decorate the cookies as desired.


Chef's Tips:
  • Dough can be frozen up to 3 months.
