Gingerbread Man Cookies

If you're like my wife and insists on having a gingerbread house during the holidays (she has them mainly so she can watch our grandson destroy it), then you just have to have gingerbread men to go with it.


  • 1 Cup margarine

  • 1 Cup sugar

  • 1/2 Cup dark molasses

  • 1 Tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 Tsp. nutmeg

  • 1 Tsp. cloves

  • 1 Tsp, Ginger

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 Tsp. Vinegar

  • 5 Cups flour

  • 1 Tsp. baking soda

In a saucepan, cream the margarine and sugar. Add molasses and spices and mix well. Bring to a boil, constantly stirring. Remove from heat and cool.

Stir in well beaten eggs and vinegar. Sift flour and baking soda and stir into molasses mixture.

Chill several hours.

Divide dough into 6 portions. Roll out and cut with gingerbread man cookie cutter. Garnish and then place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.
