“These scrumptious little cuties taste great decorated with icing or just left plain. For a darker, spicier cookie, use molasses instead of corn syrup.” - by anonymous

"this recipe is very tasty, not too strong. the dough does need to be refrigerated just not too long. I chilled mine for the afternoon while I ran errands and it was rock hard. I had to let it sit for ..." See moreabout 10 minutes before I could roll it. It doesn't get soft too fast, so it is fairly easy to work with."
"These were very nice! I didn't have molasses in the house so I wanted a recipe that didn't call for it. These have a nice mild taste...sweet enough for my kids and not overly sweet for my husband. ..." See moreThey held their shape nicely. I would recommend you let them cool on the sheet a minute before removing them so your gingerbread people don't end up missing limbs :) p.s. I only chilled them about 1/2 hour and they were fine. Also, we used canned vanilla frosting to decorate our gingerbread people and the kids had a ball."
