I second that one fiddle! I want a really good tried-n-true gingerbread that's also good for making houses! thumbs_up.gif

You know, they have these ginger cookies, (only at the holidays, and not at every location) that are simply amazing, and I hesitate to tell you where. It's the place we love to shop for everything else, but tend to run down their bakery... you know... the "W" word. Yah... Super W... you know what I'm saying. They are so good. I am not kidding!

I found this one online and I really like them. I use this recipe for cookies, I never tried to make a gingerbread house with them. They come out really soft. I use a different recipe for the house, but I'm still looking for it =)

Gingerbread Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, cubed and slightly soft
3/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp milk

In food processor:
Use the blade attachment, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, and baking soda until combined(8-10 seconds). Add butter pieces over flour mixture and mix until it is sandy and resembles very fine corn meal(12-15 seconds). With machine running, gradually add molasses and milk, mix until dough is evenly moistened and forms a soft ball(10 seconds).

In Stand mixer:
Use the paddle attachment, mix together flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, and baking soda at low speed until combined,(30 seconds). Stop mixer, add butter pieces. Mix on med/low speed until it is sandy and resembles fine corn meal, (1 1/2 minutes). Turn mixer to low and, with mixer running, slowly add molasses and milk. Mix until dough is evenly moistened, (20 seconds). Increase speed to medium and mix until thoroughly combined, (10 seconds).

Divide dough in half. Working with one portion of dough at a time, roll 1/4-inch thick between two large sheets of parchment paper. Leaving dough sandwiched between parchment layers, stack on cookie sheet and freeze until firm(15 to 20 minutes). Or you can put dough in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 350 F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Remove one cookie sheet from freezer, place on work surface. Peel off top parchment sheet and gently set it back on top of the dough. Flip dough over and peel off and throw away the other piece of parchment. Cut the cookies into any shape you want and set on the cookie sheet 3/4 inch apart. Bake cookies until set in centers and dough barely retains imprint when touched very gently with fingertip(8 to 11 minutes) rotating cookie sheets front to back and switching positions top to bottom halfway through baking time. Do not over bake. Cool cookies on sheets 2 minutes, then remove with wide metal spatula to wire rack, cool to room temperature.

OK ladies, and gentlemen...
After a horrendous day... Short version, it's raining cats and dogs, I get a flat, CANADIAN TIRE said it would be ONE HOUR to change it (I didn't even want it FIXED, JUST CHANGED!!!) with my 10 yr old and 19 mth old in the car... I started to fix it myself because my DUMBA$$ husband tapedshut.gif isn't answering his PHONE because he's sick (insert baby voice here), so my DAD came to rescue me and an hour later and soaking wet my tire was changed. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_evil.gif

So now I have a 50th wedding anniversary cake in my oven, chocolate ganache on the counter and a pretty bow drying and a rum and coke to get me over the hump. Oh, and I decorated a sugar cookie house this am. So I'm feeling VERY accomplished!!!

Now that you have read thru that, I will give you my 2 faves...

Big Soft Ginger Cookies (YUMM-O!!!)

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
+ 1/4 cup sugar to roll in (the cookies, not you, silly!)

Make into balls, roll in sugar, pat down flat on parchment paper cookie sheet.

350 for 10 min.


GingerBread House Dough

1 cup shortening (I still prefer butter)
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup molasses
5 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp each: baking soda, salt (if you've used shortening or unsalted butter), ground cloves and cinnamon

Wet and dry into separate bowls. Add dry in 3 parts. You will need to use your hands at the end.

Break into 3 separate disks, wrap in plastic and refridgerate for at least 1 hour before you use. Use within 2 days.

This is seriously my FAVE for houses and people. We actually decorated our tree one year with little dudes. It was SO cute!!!
Enjoy!!! thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif

You know, I have so many complicated recipes, but every once in a while, I have some nice, easy ones that are really good! Like this one... painfully simple, but they are really good!!

Title: ChocoCheese Pinwheels

Ingredients List:

2 sheets (17.25-oz pkg) frozen puff pastry, thawed
8 oz cream cheese, softened (any flavor)
3 T. sugar
1 pkg Nestle Morsels (any flavor)

Preheat Oven: 375°

Directions: Thaw pastry per package instructions. Unfold 1 puff pastry sheet on lightly floured surface. Roll out to make 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Combine cream cheese and sugar in small bowl until smooth. Spread half cream cheese mixture over puff pastry, leaving 1-inch border on one long side. Sprinkle with half of the morsels. Roll up starting at long side covered with cream cheese. Seal end by moistening with water. Repeat steps with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for 1 hour. CUT rolls crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices. Place cut-side-down on prepared baking sheets. BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Try mixing flavors for fun combos!! Raspberry cream cheese and those choco/rasp swirl chips for instance. Or... stir a little peanut butter into your cream cheese and sprinkle with PB chips! Or, MINT! Yum! Stir the cream cheese with a dash of mint flavoring, then add mint chips (or the chopped up Andes mints you can get... those rule!)
