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

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 about 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. They 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.

Made these for a conference, went down an amazing treat, added a touch more cinammon and ginger to make 'em taste a little more. Once people had the taste for them, they came back for more.
