a non-spreading gingerbread cookie recipe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello! this is my first time on the forum and I know I am asking in the right spot! I am looking for a gingerbread/spice cookie recipe that doesn't spread to do cookies for decorating and maybe bouquets. Thanks for any and all tips! icon_biggrin.gif

If you don't have an aversion to using a mix, Betty Crocker has a mix for Gingerbread/Gingerbread cookies that I think is super good. I use it every Christmas for my Gingerbread cut-outs.

Martha Stewart's gingerbread cookie recpe is great. It is what I use for Christmas cookies every year.

Just add extra flour for a stiffer dough or you can add a little extra flour and reduce the leavening agent for a softer cookie that doesn't puff up.

This is truly my best ever Gingerbread Recipe!! It holds its shape well, and doesnt taste like a ginger biscuit (like that burny ginger taste) and its soft when you eat it

Try it!! You WONT be sorry!

My pic (though not the best decorating haha!) which you can see how well it holds its shape, the edges are still crisp and sharp: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2190524
