Gingerbread men/Reindeer sandwich cookies

Gingerbread men sandwich cookies

In the spirit of the Christmas season, I present you with this gingerbread men recipe. You can also flip them upside down and they become reindeer! I can not decorate, so I made these into sandwich cookies, using a simple vanilla frosting recipe. The only thing I forgot to do was sprinkle sugar on top of the cookies before baking.

Reminders – 1) scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. 2) chill the dough at least a few hours. (You may need to let it sit out for a bit after the chill process to make it easier to roll out. 3) preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it cycles to the right temperature

Reindeer sandwich cookies
  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, soft
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup molasses
  • 3 tbs water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • Extra sugar

Directions – cream butter and sugar. Add egg, molasses and water. Blend in dry ingredients. Dough may be a little sticky. Cover and chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. On a floured surface, roll out dough to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Place on sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Cool completely.

Frosting – combine 2 tbs melted butter, 2 cups powdered sugar,1 tsp vanilla and add enough cream, a tbs at a time, to the desired consistency/thickness you want. Add food coloring if desired, spread between 2 cookies.

Yum!
