Gingerbread Cookie Recipe


  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup molasses
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1.5 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • In a large bowl combine together the margarine and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in molasses and egg yolk. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. Add Molasses and stir until mixed. Cover, and chill for at least one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a floured surface roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on silpats and cookie trays.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven for a softer cookie, longer if you prefer crispy, maybe another 5 minutes. After they have cooled they are ready to decorate!
