What You Need

2
cups  flour
1
tsp.  baking soda
1
Tbsp.  ground ginger
1-1/2
tsp.  ground cinnamon
3/4

Make It

COMBINE first 4 ingredients. Beat all remaining ingredients except powdered sugar and water in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Refrigerate 1 hour.

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.

BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

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

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
