Gingerbread man cookiesis a recipe.


  1. butter (unsalted) half a pack;
  2. dark brown sugar 1 cup;
  3. flour 4 glasses;
  4. egg 1 piece;
  5. half glass molasses;
  6. ground cinnamon 2 tsp.;
  7. ground ginger 2 tsp.
  8. clove, ground 2 tsp.;
  9. soda 1 tsp.
  10. salt pinch;
  11. cookie cutters;
  12. garlic press;
  13. cocktail straw
  14. butter knife;
  15. A scroll wheel for cutting dough.


In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until a soft, airy mass is formed. Beat with a mixer at high speed for about 5 minutes. Add the egg, stir. Add molasses, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, soda, salt. Beat with a mixer at low speed, gradually adding flour.

Divide the dough into pieces, roll out into cakes 1.5-2 cm thick and wrap with cling film. Put in the fridge for about 3 hours.

From the rolled dough with the help of cookie cutters, we cut out about 20 little men, lay them on a baking sheet and set aside. From the remaining dough we cut out more men, from which we will later make elements of clothing.

With the help of the wheel for the curly dough cutting cut skirts, pants, T-shirts and shoes.

On the prepared cookies, little people carefully put clothes. You should not press it tightly to the base, it will finally stick when baked in the oven.

Using the remnants of the dough, we cut out the small details using the molds for cookies. For example, with the help of tins, you can make folds for the skirt, with the help of stars - an elegant pair of shorts.

Put the rolled up lump of the remaining dough in the garlic press and squeeze out - these will be the hairs of the little man. We make curls from them or leave them straight and long. From one hair can make a nice smile on the face of a little man.

If you use the little people as a table decoration, then we make a hole at the top of the head.If you want to make a garland of them, make a hole in your hands. We make small eyes out of small circles that are squeezed out by a straw.

After the little men are dressed, you must put them in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then in the oven for 15 minutes at a temperature of 1900C. We get out of the oven and let them cool.

We add sugar, frosting, small candies and other sweets as eyes, buttons, handbags and other items of clothing.
