A classic recipe option for the holidays, you won’t go wrong by choosing to make these for Christmas. A traditional recipe in many western households, gingerbread-men cookies can add nostalgic festivity to your holiday celebrations. They’re not too difficult to make either, but make them with care in order to produce better results.

What You’ll Need: 

  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ cup of packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup of room-temperature unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cups of molasses
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk
  • Optional: Icing

How To Prepare It: 

Firstly, sift your dry ingredients into a bowl. You should cream the butter and sugar with a standing mixer until they’re fluffy.

You should then add the egg, molasses, and vanilla. Beat them until they’re well-mixed. Then, gradually add the flour, and mix it well.

Divide your mix in half and form it into two disks. You should then refrigerate it on parchment paper or plastic for 2 hours.

After waiting two hours, you can take out your mix. Now, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Between 2 pieces of parchment paper, you can roll out the disks you put in the fridge.

Now, you can cut out your gingerbread-men cookies. Maybe you have tools to shape them automatically, but you can also do it manually. After you’re done, use a spatula to transfer your shapes onto the baking sheet.

Now, you can bake your gingerbread cookies for 10-12 minutes. When done, take out and cool off. You can add icing if you feel like it, but you can also serve them as they are. \

These cookies were made for the winter season, as they look like they’ve been covered in snow themselves. If you want a cookie recipe that features a chewy, fudgy, and soft cookie, then you’d love to try this easy-to-make snack. 

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup of melted butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar

How To Prepare It:

You’ll need to preheat your oven to 350 F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.

While the oven preheats, make your mix. Take a large bowl, and stir your brownie mix, flour, eggs, and melted butter together. Mix them. The consistency should feel thick, like cookie dough.

When done, roll the dough into golf ball-sized rolls. Place the granulated sugar into a bowl, then put the balls into it. Cover them with granulated sugar. Now, place the powdered sugar into another bowl. Do the same thing.

Now, place them on the baking sheets. Separate them from each other by 2 inches. Bake them for 8-10 minutes. Take them out when the cookies have spread and the top is visibly cracked.
