  • Heat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness; cut into gingerbread shapes with 4-inch cookie cutter, rerolling trimmings as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.

  • Mix powdered sugar and water until blended. Use to decorate cookies as desired.

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Decorate Cookies

To easily decorate cooled cookies, spoon icing into resealable plastic bag. Seal bag, then cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to squeeze icing over cookies to decorate as desired.

Special Extra

Roll out dough and cut into shapes as directed; place on prepared baking sheets. Use straw to make hole near top of each cutout. After cookies are decorated, insert ribbon through holes to hang cookies on tree.

    My granddaughters, Grace age 5 and Abby age 3 just made these cookies and we all loved them! The taste is mild so the young ones liked the taste and they were soft yet still held the shape and were easy to decorate. I am allergic to gluten so used gluten free flour. They turned out great. The recipe was easy to follow.
