Holiday Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies!

One of our favorite things about the holidays? The smell of delicious holiday treats wafting in the air. We’re talking hot apple cider, pecan pies, and of course, a holiday staple, the gingerbread cookie. We love gingerbread cookies so much that we found an amazing (and fast!) recipe that we wanted to share with you. This easy recipe only takes 15 minutes to prep, and makes 8 servings. Read on for that spicy yet sweet deliciousness that we all love.


4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

3/4 cup molasses



Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and baking soda in a bowl. In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter and brown sugar until combined. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then the molasses. Slowly add the flour mixture. Mix well after each addition of flour. Divide dough in half, flatten into 2 thick circles and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to roll out. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out, cut into desired shapes and bake until golden brown (approximately 15 minutes).


Of course, add icing as desired. Voila! Gingerbread cookies. Happy holidays from the Jewel Be Mine team to you!
